Columbus Crew SC announced Tuesday the signing of Crew SC Academy product and Indiana University midfielder Aidan Morris as a Homegrown Player.
The New Albany-native was named the 2019 Big Ten Freshman of the Year and had joined the Crew SC First Team during preseason camp in 2019.
“We are excited to announce that Aidan will be joining the Crew SC First Team after a very successful season with the Indiana Hoosiers,” said President and General Manager Tim Bezbatchenko. “Aidan’s success at the collegiate level speaks to the great work being done by our Academy’s technical staff and we are glad that Aidan will remain a member of our Crew family. We believe that, had Aidan been in the MLS SuperDraft this year, he would have been one of the top three picks in the First Round.”
At the international level, Morris was recently named to the 24-player roster for the U.S. U-20 Men’s National Team January Camp. He was previously featured for the U.S. U-18 Men’s National Team.
