Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

The LA Galaxy signed Oscar Sorto off the Galaxy's U-18 academy team.

The LA Galaxy added another Homegrown Player on Tuesday, signing defender Oscar Sorto from the Galaxy Academy.

Sorto, who said it was a dream come true to join the Galaxy, played last season for the LA Galaxy Academy's U-18 team. He appeared in seven MLS Reserve League games last season while also playing for the Galaxy U-18's. The 18-year-old Sorto became the fourth player signed from the Galaxy Academy joining Jose Villarreal, Jack McBean and Tristan Bowen. Sorto is the first defender to be signed from the academy.

Sorto grew up in Los Angeles and graduated from Manual Arts High School. He spent two seasons with the Galaxy Academy, playing in eight games this season. Galaxy vice president Chris Klein said Sorto has shown tremendous potential since joining the academy and thinks he still has a lot of room to continue to improve.

In addition to his time with the Galaxy, Sorto has also trained in Sweden with Hammarby of the Swedish Suprettan.
