[MLS] In the space of a month, Jack McBean went from a sophomore at Corona del Mar High School in Newport Beach, Calif., to a resident at the U.S. under-17 national team program in Bradenton, Fla., to the Los Angeles Galaxy's latest signing as a homegrown player.

McBean, 16, played his club ball for Slammers FC in Newport Beach before joining the Galaxy academy program.

He is the first MLS home-grown signing of a player still in U-17 residency.
