[SPRING RESIDENCY] Seven new players, including U-15s Jose Carranza and Eric Lopez, are among the 28 players in the U.S. under-17 national team's spring residency class in Bradenton, Fla.

The U.S. U-17s, who are coming off wins over England (5-1) and Brazil (4-1) last month, will be participating in the 2015 Concacaf U-17 Championship, which serves as the regional qualifying tournament for the 2015 U-17 World Cup. Several of the top U-17s are playing abroad, and several others in residency are expected to move in the next year.

Other newcomers are McKenzie Gaines, Eric Matzelevich, AJ Palazzolo, Raheem Taylor-Parkes and Jaret Townsend.

“We are very excited about the group of players that we brought in this semester,” said U-17 coach Richie Williams. “We feel very confident in this group that will provide us with 20 players to go on to World Cup qualifying and hopefully through a successful World Cup qualifying campaign to lead us to next year’s World Cup.”

The following players left residency: Abraham Romero (Golden State FC), Cristian Martinez (NJSA 04), Ronaldo Escudero (Pateadores), Kevin Coleman (FC Richmond), David Loera (Orlando City Academy), Jonathan Navarro (De Anza Force) and Sean Teixeira (New York Red Bulls Academy).
