Charlotte 49ers' Gentile turns pro

Charlotte 49ers junior striker Giuseppe Gentile is leaving school early after being obtained Friday by the Chicago Fire in Major League Soccer’s waiver draft.

Gentile, who played at Ardrey Kell High, is tied for 10th on the 49ers career scoring list with 27 goals. Gentile’s most productive goal-scoring year was 2011 when he scored 10 times on his way to national freshman player-of-the year honors. He was the Atlantic 10’s rookie of the year as well as an all-Atlantic 10 second-team player as a sophomore. He made first-team all-Conference USA in 2013 with eight goals and three assists.
