    Some of those counted as coming from the east may well have been born and raised in the west and are attending an eastern college. As far as Ian Harkes...it's not unusual for a gifted athlete to have athletically gifted children. Give Ian a chance before you pass judgement. Look at all the people who said Michael Bradley was only on the USMNT because his dad was the coach. Time has shown that they were very, VERY wrong.

    Ric, in many cases I have to agree with you in regards that in american soccer is who you know more than what you know. But in the case of the kid Harkes, I have to disagree. I saw the kid play and in fact he is "legit" the kid can really play!

    I would love to see an "in-depth" article on exactly how the talent identification process currently works. Couple of questions on the process come to mind: are there any special outreach plans in place for the many ethnic communities and their leagues? For example: how would an outstanding player in the Bosniian league in St Louis get noticed? How would a Hispanic player in the Dalton, Georgia leagues be discovered? How would a skillful, technical player (but small) overcome the current selecting-out process of the US youth league coaches? Naming ethnic coaches to high level positions is great but if the structure for identifying the "hidden talent" isn't established nothing will \really change.
