Possible US Olympian to train with Sounders

Sounders draft pick Tyler Miller will train with the Sounders June 7th to the 14th after his time with the US U-23s at the Toulon Tournament is over.

Tyler Miller is coming to Seattle, to train. The former Northwestern and SVN Zweibücken goalkeeper will be coming to train with the Sounders after the Toulon Tournament ends. U23s coach Andy Herzog named the 2015 2nd round pick to the roster yesterday, as one of two players with Sounders connections.

After choosing Europe over Seattle back in January, Miller finished the season up last week in Germany and announced he would not be going back to SVN Zweibücken, in an interview with the Daily Northwestern. While his season has not gone how he planned, as the side was relegated and his numbers not as strong as they were at Northwestern, being named to the Toulon squad will boost his confidence.

Herzog is planning to use the Toulon Tournament to start getting players together and ready for Olympic Qualifying in October. Miller, who turns 23 in March of next year, will be eligible to play next year in Rio for the US and it appears that is Herzog's plan.

While the Sounders currently have three keepers on the roster, Miller would likely sign directly to S2 or sign with the MLS side and split time with Charlie Lyon in the USL. Both Saif Kerawala and RJ Noll are amateur players on the S2 roster currently.
