Juan Agudelo

F, New York Red Bulls

Entering the 2010 season, Agudelo was one of those "at least a couple of years away" prospects oozing with potential. A year later, he's U.S. Soccer's Next Big Thing. After displaying his technical skill in the postseason and with the U.S. national team in friendlies against South Africa and Chile, Agudelo has seen the bar raised at an exponential rate. While the hype machine probably needs to be turned down a notch or two, the fact remains that he'll be starting alongside Thierry Henry in what should be one of the league's more fierce attacks.
