That’s… an interesting pickup! He was a 22-year old sophomore at Campbell this Fall, and was not listed as eligible for the SuperDraft last month. I… have not looked into how that makes him waiver-eligible (presumably he changed plans to not return to college – largely based on age – after the SuperDraft deadline, or the league didn’t deem him Generation Adidas-worthy).
He is a French guy who played as both an attacking midfielder and a goals-first winger for the Camels. Given the international status, he does seem a likely loan down to Huntsville. More to come when I lay eyes on him.
