Philadelphia native and former Philadelphia Union Academy wingback Jeremiah White IV has turned professional with new independent MLS Next Pro team Carolina Core FC.

“Jeremiah is one of the youngest players in our squad and is a great representation of the future of American soccer,” Carolina Core Chief Sporting Officer Eddie Pope said in a news release announcing the signing. “At a young age, he possesses the ability to read the game at a high level. His intelligence on the field combined with his athleticism makes him the perfect profile for a wingback or wide midfielder.”

White IV, 17, is the son of Jeremiah White III, a former professional who earned a cap with the USMNT during a career that included stints in six different countries in Europe.

He spent last season with the Philadelphia Union Academy and was with the New York Red Bulls Academy before playing for his hometown academy. He’s also been called up to U.S. youth national team camps.

Carolina Core will play their first game against an in-state rival on Sunday when they travel to Matthews to play Charlotte FC’s second team.
