[MLS 2014 COUNTDOWN] Notre Dame star Harrison Shipp is among the four homegrown signings announced on Thursday.

Shipp, who finished his senior season with 12 goals and 10 assists to lead the Fighting Irish to their first national championship, signed with the Chicago Fire.

“Harry’s a local guy, one of the best college players in the country and we are extremely excited to have him join the Fire,” said Chicago coach and director of soccer Frank Yallopin a statement. “It speaks very highly of our player development system where a player of Harry’s caliber can thrive and have a direct route to the first team. He’s trained with the first team over the summer and we expect a smooth transition for him from the college game to the professional ranks.”

The Seattle Sounders signed Stanford midfielder Aaron Kovar and Wake Forest forward Sean Okoli, both underclassmen, while Toronto FC inked 17-year-old forward Jordan Hamilton from its academy program. Hamilton had played for Canada at the 2013 U-17 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates.
