The 20-year-old Prim comes to the Crew after spending the last two seasons with San Lorenzen de Almagro, the famed Buenos Aires club that produced such talent as Ivan Cordoba and Jose Luis Chilavert. The Campana, Argentina, native made his professional debut on September 26, 2009 in a 3-2 win over Tigre of Victoria.

Guillermo Barros Schelotto and Gino Padula will go down as two of the most popular Columbus Crew players of all time. It did not sit well with the fans when the ownership and management declined to extend their contracts at the end of the 2010 season.

The two players fell in love with the Columbus and Central Ohio area while they played here so much, that the two have decided to start a soccer academy.

The Argentine duo have partnered to create the Schelotto & Padula Soccer Academy which will begin operation this summer.

The academy, for boys and girls ages 6 to 18, will focus on developing creative play rather than weekly league games, The academy will offer advanced training for players who have the desire to play college or pro soccer; plans to use their many contacts with international teams to help pro prospects to get signed at an early age.

The academy will try to distinguish itself by not playing in weeknight league games and instead play in weekend tournaments santioned by the United States Club Soccer.
