Philadelphia Union Academy defender Auston Trusty is on the United States Under-17 National Team preliminary roster for a camp in Carson, California next week ahead of a trip to South Korea for the Suwon Continental Cup.
Trusty is one of 22 players on the roster, according to a report in Top Drawer Soccer. The Media native received his first call-up by coach Richie Williiams for a camp in North Jersey earlier this month.
Trusty has played on both the Union Academy U-18 and U-16 teams this year and is verbally committed to play college soccer at the University of North Carolina in 2016.
He's played in 17 games and started 14 for the U-16 team this season, scoring four goals. He's started in seven games for the U-18 team in U.S. Development Academy play, all in 2015.
The U-17s qualified for the U-17 World Cup at the CONCACAF U-17 Championship in Honduras earlier this year following a 5-4 shootout victory over Jamaica. The 2015 U-17 World Cup will be held from October 17 to November 8 in Chile. The group pairings for the 24-team tournament have not been released yet.
