US U-20 national team defender John Anthony Brooks today signed a four year professional contract with Hertha Berlin where he had been playing with the club's U-23 team.

Brooks' agent Maikel Stevens confirmed the deal to YA.

Brooks began the season with Hertha Berlin's U-19 team but in 2011 he was promoted to the club's U-23 team where he helped to anchor the club's defense.

Hertha Berlin are coming off a season where they have won the 2.Bundesliga and will be in the Bundesliga next year where Brooks could make his first team debut.

Brooks, 18, will now head to France to play with the US U-20 national team where he is expected to be a major part of the team during the 2013 cycle.

I hate to be the harbinger of bad news, ladies and gentlemen, but Michael Orozco will start for the US men's national team in Jacksonville.
