HOW ACQUIRED: Signed as a Homegrown Player on Jan. 26, 2018.
Fuentes is the Earthquakes youngest-ever signing (fifth Homegrown signing) and is the second-youngest player in MLS at signing. He made his MLS debut against the Colorado Rapids, entering as a substitute in the 89th minute and becoming the youngest player to feature for San Jose.
INTERNATIONAL: Has been a regular with the United States Youth National Team system. After competing extensively with the U-15s in 2017, including at the Concacaf U-15 Championship, Fuentes received his first call-up to the U.S. U-17s last November for the Men's Nike International Friendlies. He also received a call-up to the U-17s as part of U.S. Soccer's first-ever Men's YNT Summit Camp.
OUTSIDE MLS: Fuentes made four appearances for San Jose’s USL affiliate Reno 1868 FC in 2018. He joined the Quakes' U-15 squad from Ballistic United SC in 2016. Despite age-eligibility for the U-17s during the 2017-18 academy season, he has been competing solely for the U-19s and has scored three goals in eight games so far this year.
