Miles Robinson, Jonathan Lewis and Jeremy Ebobisse — the No. 2, 3 and 4 picks in Friday's MLS draft — are in Tab Ramos' squad.

U.S. Under-20 national team coach Tab Ramos named a 24-player squad for January camp Saturday, with top-four MLS draft picks Miles Robinson, Jonathan Lewis and Jeremy Ebobisse making the cut.

The camp begins Sunday and runs through Jan. 23 in Carson, California, as the U.S. prepares for next month's CONCACAF U-20 Championship in Costa Rica. That tournament will serve as qualifying for the U-20 World Cup, which will be held May 20 to June 11 in South Korea.

Robinson went No. 2 overall to Atlanta United in Friday's MLS draft in Los Angeles. New York City FC then took Lewis with the third selection before the Portland Timbers picked Ebobisse at No. 4.

The squad also features the U-20 pool debut of U.S. U-17 standout Josh Sargent, while 2015 U-20 World Cup veteran Erik Palmer-Brown is marking his return to the squad after a yearlong absence.

The U.S. also will gather for a camp in Orlando, Florida, from Jan. 31 to Feb. 10 before kicking off the CONCACAF U-20 Championship against Panama on Feb. 18.
