Additionally, Crew Academy forwards Chase Adams, Jamil Danjaji, and Dacian Delgado recently represented their Men’s Youth National Teams.

Morris and Schulte have been selected to the United States Under-23 side’s 25-player roster for the final training camp in Kansas City as the USA continues its preparations for the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris. The U.S. will face Japan on Tuesday, June 11 at Children’s Mercy Park in Kansas City, Kan.

The U.S. Men’s Olympic Team returns to the Summer Olympic Games for the first time since 2008. Tournament teams are comprised of players under the age of 23, with an allowance for three overage players.

Both Morris and Schulte participated in the U-23 USMNT’s March training camp earlier this year, earning a 2-2 draw against France and a 3-0 win against Guinea. Additionally, both players were called up to the senior side’s January Training Camp in Orlando, Fla., and San Antonio, Texas.
