Orange County SC announced last week that they have signed midfielder Danny Crisostomo for the 2019 season, out of UC Irvine.
The rookie joins after a four-year collegiate career at UCI, where he was named 2018 Big West Midfielder of the Year and All-Big West First Team, as well as being a 2018 All-Far West Region third team selection by United Soccer Coaches.
The Peruvian-American is a native of Fontana and has played with several youth programs in the area. In 2013, he was a finalist for Sueño MLS, the same program that discovered Jorge Villafaña.
“I’m very excited that we have come to terms with Danny,” said OCSC head coach Braeden Cloutier in a statement. “He is a player that has gone under the radar and will surprise a lot of teams this year. Danny is a tenacious midfielder that has impressed everyone through our preseason.”
“I am blessed to have signed my first professional contract with OCSC,” said Crisostomo. “I am excited to represent the organization both on and off the field. I am looking forward to our success this season. Thank you to everyone who has supported me in my journey.”
Orange County’s roster is now up to somewhere around 16 players. With the season kicking off on Saturday at Reno 1868 FC, expect to hear several more roster moves announced this week.
