The youth movement in Foxborough remains in full swing as the Revolution signed 19-year-old Academy midfielder Zachary Herivaux to a Homegrown Player deal on Saturday.

Herivaux, who’s starred with the club’s U-16 and U-18 squads, recently committed to Providence College, but will now forgo his college eligibility to sign a pro contract. He also saw action with the Revolution senior squad during the last two preseason camps.

“I couldn’t be happier to be signing with the Revolution,” Herivaux said in a club release. “The Academy helped me grow as a player both on and off the field, and I’m ready to take this next step in my career. I’m excited represent my hometown club, and to have the opportunity to play in front of my family and friends. I can’t wait to start training with the first team.”

During the 2014-15 Academy season, he scored five goals in 16 games. He has played five seasons with the Revolution youth sides since joining the program in 2011.

“We are very excited to be officially adding Zach to our roster and having him begin his professional career with the New England Revolution,” Revolution general manager Michael Burns said in a club release. “Our Academy continues to grow and improve and Zach is a clear indication of that. Our past Academy graduates have had an outstanding impact on our club and we feel that in time, Zach will be able to leave a similar mark.”

Herivaux is the third player the Revolution have signed to a Homegrown Player contract. Diego Fagundez and Scott Caldwell joined the club on Homegrown deals in 2010 and 2013, respectively.

The addition of Herivaux puts the Revolution roster at 27. He will wear number 21, the same number his longtime mentor, former Revolution midfielder Sharlie Joseph, wore during his time in New England.
