Seattle Sounders still hold hope for USA international Morris

Seattle Sounders general manager Garth Lagerwey still has his fingers crossed that Jordan Morris will one day join the club.


The 20-year old striker has rejected overtures from the MLS side to remain in college at Stanford University despite being seen training with Sounders 2, Seattle's USL affiliate.

Morris is already a five-time USA international and boasts a goal to his name against Mexico but is content at Stanford the time being which Lagerwey can understand.

"I made my peace with this one a while ago," Lagerwey said. "And look, I understand why it's still a story.

"I wish Jordan well at Stanford. I certainly enjoyed my college years, and I understand why he enjoys his. I respect his choice, and hopefully he'll sign with the Sounders when he's done with Stanford.

"If he will or he won't, that'll be up to Jordan. We have a good relationship with his family, but it's Jordan's choice. He's a smart young man, and he's going to do what he thinks is best for his career."
