The LA Galaxy announced on Thursday they have signed forward Cameron Dunbar to a homegrown player contract.

The 17-year-old joins out of the LA Galaxy academy, and is the first homegrown player in Galaxy history to hail from Carson.

“Cameron has shown his quality as he has developed in our Academy and we are excited that he has signed his first professional contract,” said LA Galaxy General Manager Dennis te Kloese in a team statement. “We are excited to see him continue to grow on and off the field as a professional.”

Dunbar previously played for Albion SC’s program, and recently trained with the U.S. Men’s National Team during January camp.

It seems pretty likely the youngster will be a depth option for the first team, and will get some run with LA Galaxy II this year in the USL Championship. He was on the roster of Los Dos last year but did not make an appearance, but I expect he’ll get some playing time on that circuit in 2020.

If he impresses there? The sky could be the limit.
