    On the one hand, I'm glad to see there is opportunity for 4 new faces on this team. What I'm trying to figure out is how much churn there is on the U teams as they make their way up the ladder. Obviously players like Pelosi pick up professional contracts, but I'm curious how good our scouts are and how efficient that process is. There seems to be more turnover with these U teams, but it's hard determining that based on the spotty player pool info available here: http://www.ussoccer.com/Teams/Youth/US-Under17-Men.aspx Are there additional filters that other national sides include that better weed out those that can't make it to the next level? Since they're only looking for midfielders and defenders at this point, it looks to the untrained eye that only now they're considering soccer IQ and skills.
