Thomas Williams

Age: 17

Prior Years w/ Orlando City: 1 (0)

I absolutely love the three main center backs on the roster, but Williams is far and away the most exciting player in the group. The 17-year-old is one of the most highly touted young defenders in the country, recently training with the US u-20s. The coaches and front office staff at the club are huge on Williams potential and it's easy to get excited. He's still very young, especially for a center back, and he might not play this year, same as last season, but between MLS Next Pro and midweek or cup games, this will be a big development year for the hugely talented young player.
