Where was the U.S. talent-wise? Where was it going? Those were questions I asked 10 experts from across the American game a half-decade ago. Today, one quote in particular sticks out. "I think in the next five to seven years," said then-Columbus Crew coach and now USMNT boss Gregg Berhalter, "there's going to be a lot of really good players coming out of the U.S. in world soccer."
"But a lot has changed. I wanted to pull my hair out when I couldn’t pick Brenden Aaronson and Richy Ledezma for the  U-20 World Cup. They were already playing professional games, but other guys were ahead of them at that moment. Compare that to 2011, when I took over the U-20s, and I was pretty much taking anyone who was on a pro team just because of their experience. Now we’re cutting professionals."

Giovanni Reyna, MF, Borussia Dortmund (18) -- The biggest riser over the past year, Reyna has gone from good young prospect to starting alongside Jadon Sancho and Erling Haaland at Borussia Dortmund. The son of legendary USMNTer Claudio Reyna, Gio became the youngest goal scorer in the history of the German Cup last year and already has a goal and three assists in the Bundesliga this season.
Sebastian Soto, FW, Norwich (on loan with Telstar) (20) -- One of the biggest question marks on this list, Soto is in the middle of a tug-of-war between Chile and the U.S. for his international services. One of these countries will be getting a pure goal scorer as Soto has racked up goals wherever he's played. He fired 17 goals in 24 games while with Hannover 96's U19s, added four for the U.S. at the 2019 U20 World Cup, and has five goals in his first seven games for loan club Telstar in the Dutch league.
