HOW ACQUIRED: Signed as a Homegrown Player on Jan. 26, 2018.
Fuentes joins the Earthquakes as their youngest-ever signing (fifth Homegrown signing) and is the second-youngest player in MLS at signing. He is the No. 4 player in his age group according to TopDrawerSoccer.com.
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 earlier this month as part of U.S. Soccer's first-ever Men's YNT Summit Camp.
ACADEMY: Fuentes 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.
