Dotson Joins U.S. U-23’s for January Camp
CORVALLIS, Ore. – Former Oregon State men's soccer standout Hassani Dotson will be part of the United States U-23 January Training Camp, which will begin Jan. 9 in Bradenton, Fla.
Dotson is among 26 U-23 squad members who will train alongside 12 members of the United States Men's National Team through January 24, at which point several U-23 players will be elevated to the full USMNT roster in advance of a planned match at the end of the month.
The U-23s are gathering as a group for the first time since the suspension of the Concacaf Men's Olympic Qualifying Championship ten months ago and will use this last opportunity for head coach Jason Kreis to build and evaluate the roster ahead of the resumption of the qualifying tournament in March.
Dotson played for Oregon State from 2015-18, and was selected by Minnesota United FC in the second round of the 2019 MLS SuperDraft. He played every minute for the Beavers his senior season, serving as a steadying force in the OSU midfield. Dotson was a Pac-12 Second Team honoree, and earned conference Player of the Week recognition once in 2018. He has appeared in 42 matches for Minnesota United over the last two campaigns, making 27 starts and scoring five goals.
