I know you guys don't care about this but maybe you can answer anyway. Any ideas what the process is for making the U20 USMNT? I can't find info anywhere. Do they tryout a couple hundred? 40? 60?
Know how many of the USMNT came from the U20 squad?
The US Soccer website doesn't really have anything.
Most of the current squad played for the u-20's, but the majority of players who made the u-20's at one point or another never get capped with the senior team. Making the team I'm not sure about. If you get invited to a camp, it's typically 3 or 4 keepers at the max and they carry 2 on game day, three for a major tournament. It's much more scatter shot than the senior team, trying to identify talent rather than refine it. A lot of times they use it to ingratiate themselves to dual-nationals who may be being courted by other countries as a way to let them know they're on the US radar.
