The USL Championship's Orange County SC added two more young
players to its roster: 19-year-old Alexis Cerritos, the son of former MLS star Ronald Cerritos and 16-year-old Raymond Drai.
Cerritos, a Salvadoran international, played for Oliveirense in the third tier of Portuguese soccer after leaving the D.C. United academy. Cerritos grew up playing youth soccer for his father’s Cerritos Soccer Academy. He made his debut for El Salvador against Canada in 2017, following in the footsteps of his father who has 70 international caps.
Drai played for Real SoCal and the FC Golden State academy, two top Southern California programs.
"Raymond is an exciting young player that has impressed the technical staff the past few weeks in training," OCSC head coach Braeden Cloutier. "He is a very confident player that we are all looking forward to working with and Alexis is a strong physical player that has the ability to create offensively and score goals. I’m looking forward to seeing them both play."
Other young OCSC signings include Kobi Henry, 16, and Francis Jacobs, 15. Bryang Kayo was briefly with OCSC in 2019 and is now at Wolfsburg.
