New York Red Bulls II sign goalkeeper AJ Marcucci for the 2021 season. The new 21-year-old has an enormous amount of college experience and now steps into the USL Championship during a transitional period for the team.
"We are really excited to add AJ to the 2021 roster," said head coach John Wolyniec. "He is a determined player with a big personality, who continues to show that he can up his game.:
The Connecticut College veteran has the school record with 25 clean sheets and was named to the NCAA All-American First Team. Marcucci was the 67th pick in the 2021 MLS SuperDraft and, like many before him, he will be given the chance to show himself at the USL level.
Success in New York Red Bulls II has shown to be a stepping stone to Major League Soccer. Aaron Long, Tyler Adams, Derrick Etienne Jr., Florian Valot and others have made the move from the second division club to the starting line-up in MLS.
"I feel very grateful to be joining this organization and I cannot wait to get started," said Marcucci.
