[BAHAMAS CAMP] The U.S. under-23 men's national team roster will hold a five-day camp, beginning Sunday, in Nassau, Bahamas. The camp will conclude with a game against the Bahamas national team on Wednesday at the Thompson A. Robinson National Stadium.

U.S. national team staff assistant coaches Tab Ramos and Andi Herzog and goalkeeper coach Chris Woods will oversee the camp along with U.S. under-18 national team head coach Javier Perez.

The roster features eight players that Ramos took to the 2013 U-20 World Cup in Turkey, including Luis Gil, who has since been capped on the senior national team but recently lost his starting job at Real Salt Lake. The only other player called in who has been to a senior national team camp is goalkeeper Cody Cropper. All but three of the players are pros.

The team will form the core of players for the team will take part in qualifying for the 2016 Olympics. Other players eligible for the team include U.S. World Cup players DeAndre Yedlin, John Brooks and Julian Green. Only three players from the 2013 U-20s are currently full-time starters in MLS: Shane O'Neill, Wil Trapp and Yedlin. Colorado's Dillon Serna played in qualifying but did not go to Turkey for the finals.

GOALKEEPERS (2): Cody Cropper (Southampton/ENG), Zack Steffen (Univ. of Maryland)
DEFENDERS (7): AJ Cochran (Houston Dynamo), Christian Dean (Vancouver Whitecaps), Ramon Martin del Campo (UC Davis), Bryan Gallego (Arizona United), Juan Pablo Ocegueda (Alebrijes de Oaxaca/MEX), William Packwood (Birmingham City/ENG), Oscar Sorto (LA Galaxy)
