D, Philadelphia Union
Just 20, it seems as if Williams, a former U.S. youth international, has been around for ages. Like current U.S. right back Eric Lichaj, he left the University of North Carolina after one season with hopes of securing a professional contract overseas. The only difference is that Williams failed to do so and bounced around the lower divisions of U.S. soccer before landing in Philadelphia last summer. Upon his arrival, he helped stabilize a defense that had been shaky at best. With a full season ahead of him at right back, Williams has the chance to kick off what was supposed to be a standout career.
