New York Red Bull II has been busy this weekend ahead of their game against Chaleston as academy prospect Bolu Akinyode becomes the team’s latest signing.

The Brooklyn native was a standout for the Nigerian under-14 team and captained both the under-16 team and under-18 Red Bull academy sides.

Akinyode made quite a bit of noise on the college scene with Seton Hall University, starting sixteen of seventeen matches his freshman year and becoming a mainstay during his years there. When all was said and done, he tacked five goals and four assists while also becoming a Big East Academic All-Star along the way.

It isn’t clear how quickly Akinyode will be available to the team but it may end up being soon as the team will be going on an extended road trip in the month of May.

Bolu Akinyode

Position: Midfielder
DOB: May 30, 1994
Height: 6-0
Weight: 181
Hometown: Lagos, Nigeria
