Former Penn State Men’s Soccer Forward Danny Bloyou Signs With USL’s FC Tuscon

Former Penn State men’s soccer forward Danny Bloyou has signed with the United Soccer League’s FC Tuscon, the team announced Tuesday afternoon.

“I’m excited to be in an environment where the drive to win and improve each day is very high from the players and staff,” Bloyou told the team. “I’m looking forward to taking the pitch with the guys and helping in whatever way I can to win games and titles.”

“He has great pace, great athleticism, he’s creative in the final third and he has a great attitude towards the game,” FC Tucson Head Coach Jon Pearlman said in a release. “He’s going to be able to provide us with some great moments this season as an attacking player.” 

In January, Bloyou was selected 75th overall in the MLS SuperDraft by Atlanta United FC before exiting the team.

Formerly a transfer from Old Dominion, the Nittany Lion was instrumental in Penn State’s 2021 capture of the Big Ten Championship – the first since 2005. Bloyou finished his two-year Penn State career with 12 goals and nine assists.

After Penn State’s 2020 season, the Ghana native led the team with eight goals scored and was named to the All-Big Ten first team. In 2021, Bloyou again earned first-team All-Big Ten honors.

Though the signing is still pending league and federation approval, FC Tuscon’s next game is not until April 2 against the Richmond Kickers. The game will kickoff at 2:30 p.m. on ESPN+ or Hulu.
