Muuss' Take
"Omir's ability to run in behind and find ways to score goals is something I have not seen in a youth player in a very long time. He's a selfless player who plays his role on the field, but more importantly, he finds ways to positively impact the game. He brings tons of experience from playing with Red Bulls and the National Team, and we expect him to have the same impact in the ACC."
