D.C. United signed midfielder Jeremy Garay to a homegrown contract on Friday.

Garay’s MLS contract will start in 2022. The 18-year-old has made 23 career appearances over parts of three seasons with the club’s USL Championship affiliate Loudoun United.

“This signing continues to show the value and strength of the Pathway to Pro Program that we’ve developed at the club,” D.C. United general manager Lucy Rushton said. “As the seventh Homegrown player on the current roster, this is another example of how the Pathway to Pro Program is enabling us to successfully develop young talent at the club.”

Garay is the 16th homegrown signing in D.C. United history.

“We have been impressed with Jeremy’s development and progression over this past year with Loudoun United,” Loudoun general manager Stewart Mairs said in a club statement. “He has composure beyond his years in the midfield and we’re looking forward to continuing to work closely with him with the ultimate goal of getting him minutes with the first team.”
