It’s time for the monthly round up of what Whitecaps prospects not currently with the first team got up to.

Simon Colyn:

Colyn played two games, both off the bench, for Spal U-19 and got an assist against Torino U-19. He currently has 1 goal and 2 assists in 11 appearances (384 minutes).

Jasser Khmiri:

Khmiri’s USL season starts tomorrow with San Antonio. Personally i’m very curious to see if he can recapture the form that got the Whitecaps to sign him in the first place or if injuries have just taken to great a toll. If you’re one of the, like, 50 people who clicks on these articles then maybe you’re wondering that as well. Khmiri has played with San Antonio in one friendly match and looks set to be a key piece if he can stay healthy.

Eric Illoski:

The Whitecap’s 3rd pick in the 2021 super draft has signed a contract with the Las Vegas Lights. The Whitecaps will still hold his MLS rights but for the time being he’s not going to be covered in these recaps anymore.

Joel Harrison:

Vancouver’s remaining unsigned draft pick was named to the “first team all big 10.” As far as I can tell that basically means he was in the season best XI. I can’t find any info on what he’s up to now but he presents a kind of interesting problem for the Whitecaps. If they still had a USL team or if the MLS reserve league was up and running it would be a no brainer to sign Harrison to that. There is categorically no space for him in the first team at the moment but he seems to have some ability and it would be a shame to just cut him loose. Perhaps a sign and loan to the CPL? (if they ever get up and running this season). I feel like the most likely outcome is Harrison signing a contract with a USL or CPL team but a man can dream.
