Jonathan Klinsmann, son of Jurgen, commits to college... and he’s a goalkeeper


Fresh off a run to the Elite Eight, the University of California men’s soccer team has added a familiar last name to its program.

Though this Klinsmann’s about stopping shots, not banging them home.

I have verbally committed to the University of California, Berkeley today! Can’t wait what the future holds! #GoBears

Yep, goalkeeper Jonathan Klinsmann ('15), son of United States men’s national team coach Jurgen Klinsmann, has committed to his college.

Jonathan played for the USMNT U-15 boys team as well as the Irvine Strikers on his way to Berkeley. It’s a good place for keepers to grow, as evidenced by the careers of Stefan Frei and Erik Kronberg amongst others.
