San Jose Earthquakes describes George Asomani as a promising Ghanaian prospect


Major League Soccer (MLS) side San Jose Earthquakes have described young Ghanaian and North Carolina State midfielder George Asomani as “a promising prospect”.

The Quakes drafted Asomani in the second round (No. 39) of the 2021 MLS SuperDraft with an assurance to give the player more time to progress in his career.

“We were not sure that George was going to be available in the second round and consider ourselves fortunate to be able to select him.

“He’s a central midfielder that covers a lot of space, both defensively and in possession. We are going to give him the necessary time to transition to MLS, but believe he is a promising prospect”, the Quakes noted.

The talented young Ghanaian midfielder does not have a pre-signed contract with the MLS at the moment and will need to sign with the club before being placed on the roster.

Asomani, after playing two seasons at Monroe College, moved to North Carolina and played 18 matches with a combined total minutes of 1598. He scored one goal in NC State’s ACC Tournament quarterfinal match at Pittsburgh on November 10 and made his Wolfpack debut in the season-opening win over Loyola on August 30. He also recorded nine total shots, two of which were on target, and was named to the 2019-20 ACC Academic Honor Roll.
