Former Spartan DeJuan Jones Earns Invite to USMNT January Preparation Camp


EAST LANSING, Mich. – Former Michigan State men’s soccer player DeJuan Jones has been called to the United States Men’s National Team for its January Preparation Camp in Carson, California.

Jones, who currently plays for the New England Revolution, will train with the United States as part of its training camp, opening Jan. 21. USMNT assistant coach Anthony Hudson will select the final roster for upcoming friendly matches against Serbia (Jan. 25) and Colombia (Jan. 28).

This is the second career international call-up for Jones. Last season the New England Revolution outside back set career-high marks in starts (31) and minutes played (2,470). In 2021, the Lansing, Michigan native finished fifth in MLS Defender of the Year voting after helping New England win its first Supporters’ Shield in club history. 

Jones was part of the 2018 Spartan team that led Michigan State to the College Cup. He earned second-team All-Big Ten honors for the two-straight seasons. He ended the season third on the team, scoring five goals and five assists for 15 points. He completed his MSU career with 16 goals and 14 assists for 46 points.
