UNC star Garcia signs with FC Dallas
[HOMEGROWN WATCH] Not unexpectedly, midfielder Danny Garcia, who was taken off the field after he was elbowed in the back
of his head in the USA's opening game against Spain at the Under-20 World Cup, won't return for his sophomore year at North Carolina, where he was the 2012 ACC Freshman of the Year, after signing a
homegrown contract with FC Dallas.
He becomes the 10th U.S. U-20 player on the USA’s U-20 World Cup team to sign with an MLS team. U-20 teammate Kellyn Acosta signed with FC Dallas between his junior and senior year in high school.
They played on the 2012 FC Dallas U-17/18 Development Academy championship team.
Garcia is the 11th homegrown player in Dallas history.
