  1. Could this mean that Eyestone is potentially not signing a Homegrown contract and is signing a Pre-Contract with a European Club after his season with Duke?

    1. Getting Eyestone or not will depend on the offers he gets from Europe and what FCD offers him as a Homegrown. Eyestone I am quite sure will be homegrown or nothing.
      Consider this guy as insurance if they miss on Eyestone.
      Or a NTX backup if they do get Eyestone.
