Wil Trapp has been called into the U.S. Men's National Team January camp according to Ben Ferree of Columbus Wired. The 21 year old has been a mainstay of the U.S. Youth teams, but had been waiting for his first call-up to the senior team.

A homegrown signing in 2013, he made his debut on July 7th that year and finished the year with 16 straight starts. He was named vice captain in 2014 by incoming head coach Gregg Berhalter. He started 28 games while adding a goal and an assist while anchoring Crew SC's dynamic midfield.

Trapp joins a growing list of international players on the Crew SC roster. Michael Parkhurst (USA), Waylon Francis (Costa Rica), Justin Meram (Iraq), Kei Kamara (Sierra Leone), and Emanuel Pogatetz (Austria) have made international appearances in the last year.

The U.S. January camp focuses on assessing MLS talent with the occasional addition of European players on winter break. The National Team finishes the month with a game against Chile on January 28th.
