Hot Time In Red Bull Town Tonight

The Red Bulls announced the signing of 19-year-old defender Sacir Hot today, making the former academy product their fourth Homegrown Player (after Giorgi Chirgadze, Juan Agudelo, and Matt Kassel, who inked a deal on Tuesday).

Hot played two seasons at Boston College after leaving the Red Bulls academy, and was on trial recently with Borussia Moenchengladbach (former New York midfielder Michael Bradley’s club, though maybe not for long*) and Borussia Dortmund of the Bundesliga.

Moenchengladbach was reportedly very interested in acquiring the US U-20 national teamer, but he ultimately decided to sign closer to home (Hot is from Fair Lawn, NJ) and with the club that developed him.

* More on that shortly.
