I understand @BrianSciaretta's take on this (the USYNT has capped these kids repeatedly at multiple age levels) as well as Belz's (in the new social media era we have to recruit every single dual national – take nothing for granted). They both make good points.
But the overall point, as I see it: Shouldn't the #USMNT GM (or someone in the program) be checking in with our best players at all age groups on the regular as a matter of course? Shouldn't that be part of the job description?

Gonna put together a little thread:

I'm stoked for this #USYNT at the U-20 World Cup. I think the team that @RamosTab brought is filled with high-upside players, many of whom have the ability to bigger and better things than the cohorts and generations that've come before.
I am particularly high on Chris Richards, a former FC Dallas academy CB who was sold to Bayern Munich last year for about 1.25 million before he'd ever played a pro game.

His passing is so smooth – the ball travels like it's on a pool table.
Paxton Pomykal – you know him if you watch any @MLS. He's another @FCDallas academy kid, and at the pro level I don't think the US has ever produced a more complete CM (or winger, where he'll play today).

Mature. Affects the game on both sides of the ball
