MOST COMMENTED

[MLS] Only days before they were supposed to be headed off to college, Davy Armstrong and Conor Shanosky became the latest players to sign with the MLS clubs in whose academy programs they have been playing.

Armstrong is the first academy player the Rapids have signed. He joined their academy in 2007 from the Colorado Fusion and had originally intended to play for the University of Washington.

Shanosky, an 18-year-old defensive midfielder who had committed to George Mason University, was promoted to D.C. United's senior team after returning from the Milk Cup, where he helped the USA win the U-20 tournament.

He is the third academy player to sign with D.C. Bill Hamid and Andy Najarare both starters in their first full pro season.

The signings of Armstrong and Shanosky bring to 14 the number of MLS homegrown players.

The Chicago Fire will announce the signing of two players this week.

TUESDAY UPDATE: The Fire announced the signing of 17-year-old Victor Pineda from its Development Academy team.
