Seaton’s signing was first reported by the Insider on Friday.
“The main goal of the academy is to prepare players for these moments,” Sonny Silooy, United’s director of youth development, said in a written statement. “He has the tools and a lot of potential. We have been impressed at his rate of development, and look forward to his future.”
Seaton was born in Jamaica before settling in the Washington area at age 7. He lives in Capitol Heights, Md., and is a junior at Central High School in Prince George’s County. He developed with Freestate Soccer Alliance, a youth program that last month became affiliated with United for development purposes.
“Michael has made big strides in a short amount of time and is ready to take the next step,” General Manager Dave Kasper said. “As an attacking player, Michael has an excellent work rate and is a real handful for opposing defenses.”
