I'm told the Seattle Sounders have signed Indiana University goalkeeper Trey Muse to a homegrown player deal. Muse was considered the best college goalkeeper in the nation. #Sounders— Ives Galarcep (@SoccerByIves) January 10, 2019
On Monday night Brian Sciaretta, an MLS and USMNT writer for American Soccer Now, tweeted out that he’s hearing that the Seattle Sounders are expected to sign goalkeeper Trey Muse to a Homegrown Player contract.

As Brian says, Trey Muse has been playing with Indiana University for the last two years. During his time in Indiana, Trey has racked up all sorts of accolades. Both during his freshman and sophomore years, Trey set record records and won tournament, conference, and national awards.
Should Muse sign with the Sounders, it is expected that he would slot in as the starter for the not-yet-named Tacoma Sounders’ USL team next season, while splitting time as the #2 keeper for the first team with Bryan Meredith behind Stefan Frei.
There were previous musings that Trey wanted to test his trade overseas, but maybe he sees the Sounders as a viable option in the mean time.
Trey Muse is 19 years old and grew up in Louisville, Ky. before moving to the Seattle area and attending Roosevelt High School for his junior and senior years. He has made 32 appearances with the Sounders’ Academy. Last week, Trey was one of six players associated with the Sounders called into the United States U20 camp.
