Jordan Morris scored twice as Stanford beat Clemson to win the national championship tonight – and now he has no reason to go pro.
The striker already has seven international caps for Jurgen Klinsmann’s USA team, but he’s so far not moved to the professional ranks.
As a junior, he could still go on to play for Stanford in his senior year.
But with interest from the Seattle Sounders and from a number of clubs in Europe, it looks like Morris has played his last game at collegiate level.
And what a way to go out – scoring two goals as Stanford beat Clemson 2-0 at Sporting Park in Kansas City this afternoon.
His first goal was particularly impressive, finishing off a great team move with a powerful shot high into the net:
Morris’ second wasn’t half bad either, taking a pass into the box on the swivel before firing home:

Now questions have to be asked of the 21-year-old, who has surely played his last game in college football.
He hinted that this could have been his last year in June and finishing on such a high looks like being the perfect way to go.
Morris is the golden boy of US soccer and you would expect him to really take his game to the next level by moving up to the professional ranks.
Where that will be remains to be seen.
