New England Revolution II signed defender Victor Souza on Wednesday to an MLS NEXT Pro professional contract ahead of the 2023 season.
The 21-year-old Souza, a former Boston College standout, will continue playing his soccer in New England. He joins the Revolution's second team after being selected 39th overall in the 2023 MLS SuperDraft in December.
The 6-foot-2 Souza enjoyed an excellent four-year career at nearby BC, where he made 48 starts and logged nearly 4,400 minutes played. The Ozone Park, N.Y. native played every minute for the Eagles in 2019, earning ACC All-Freshman honors. The central defender was named to the All-ACC Third Team in each of his last two collegiate seasons, earning an invitation to the 2023 MLS College Showcase last December.
