Maryland junior forward Gordon Wild, a prolific scorer in his first two seasons of college soccer before struggling this fall, will forgo his final year of eligibility to pursue a pro career. Wild, 22, has weighed opportunities back home in Germany in the second division but is likely to sign with Major League Soccer this week and enter the Jan. 19 draft in Philadelphia, one source told The Washington Post. He is working with sports marketing firm Octagon, which lists former U.S. star Eddie Pope among its North American soccer executives. Neither Wild nor Maryland coach Sasho Cirovski replied to requests for comment from the Post. Wild is the second prominent Terp to leave a year early: Eryk Williamson, a U.S. under-20 national team midfielder from Alexandria, Va., is deciding whether to sign with a club in Scandinavia or accept D.C. United's homegrown contract offer. He has no plans to return to College Park. As a D.C. academy player, Williamson is not eligible for the MLS draft. It is unclear how highly MLS clubs rate Wild after he scored just five goals in 2017 and went scoreless the past two months. As a freshman, he led the nation in scoring with 16 goals at South Carolina Upstate, a small Division I program. He then transferred to Maryland and scored 17 goals in earning Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year honors and being named one of three finalists for the Hermann Trophy, college soccer's equivalent to football's Heisman Trophy.
