Pulisic to Dortmund, almost

American Under-17 player and PA Classics star forward Christian Pulisic is nearing completion of a five-year deal with Borussia Dortmund.

PennLive's Michael Bullock has a lengthy profile of the 15-year-old Hershey, Pa. native right here.

If you're on the run though, here's the passage you really need to read:
"With a long-term contract in play (five years) and a European passport in his already-ragged travel bag once the paperwork is finalized — his grandfather, Mate Pulisic, is a Croatian native who eventually emigrated to the United States so Christian is attempting to obtain a Croatian passport ..."
It's worth noting that he's trained with Chelsea, PSV Eindhoven, Porto and Barcelona before.

He is currently tearing it up for the US U-17 team. He has 6 goals in 4 games, and the US are through to the semifinals. Ive been saying this for the past year, but this kid is the best youth prospect in the Country. To me at least, he is miles ahead of where Flores was when he was at Bradenton. Pulisic is just so much more well rounded as a player

The story going around is not accurate.

Back to the topic...Looks like David Wagner is starting to horde Americans, which is a good thing.
