A 2021-2022 MLS Next All-Star, Bryce Jamison earns his first national team camp call-up. The forward joined Barca Residency Academy in the fall of 2021 and burst onto the scene scoring five goals in his first eight starts for Barca’s U-17 team. Jamison was quickly moved up to the U-19 squad where he helped his team win the MLS Next Southwest Division and secure a spot in the MLS Next Cup Playoffs. Jamison scored seven goals in 13 games for Barca’s U-19 squad including a goal in the first round of the MLS Next Cup Playoffs.
