Seems like Giammatei is playing in Ireland?  Does that mean he can no longer play for Amherst?

Seems that way to me, but I have no idea how that all works.  Interestingly, Dundalk is playing him as a defender, which surprised me.

Giammattei is listed on the Dudalk website (scroll down in the below link), so I imagine it's safe to say that his college career is over.  Pretty cool to end up in the Irish Premier League, I imagine that is quite competitive ... tough luck for Amherst, of course, to (likely due to COVID) lose two years of (I imagine) the most talented player they have ever had.

I think it's possible that he can return to play for Amherst if he isn't accepting a salary.

Amherst is constructing two new fields now...both will be ready for the fall.  The two fields are between the softball field and the football field.  Gooding field will become a multipurpose field with stands lights, etc.  Both menís and womenís soccer teams will have an option to practice and play when the present grass fields are not available due to weather, etc.
The field hockey team will have a new field built....between Gooding field and the softball field.  Lights, stands, scoreboard, etc...top of line surface, etc.  Both fields will be ready by the fall.
Write-up on the Amherst athletic site.

Wow, that's obviously huge new for Amherst ... in that case, he's in line for an absolutely massive end to his college career, with the added experience from playing professionally while other guys were mostly sitting out.  He's going to be very tough to stop, as will Amherst.

It's crazy to think at how good Giammattei is and realize that there are kids playing in the Premier League at his age (Trent A-A was 20 when the corner was taken quickly and Rashford was 18 when he scored braces on his EL and PL debuts). But, getting into the consciousness of the European coaches is always a good step if you want to go that route. It's amazing how many players with storied careers started out because X scout or Y coach was at a game to watch someone else but then someone else stole the show and made an impression. Training with the first team of a Europa League club is a great way to make an impression.
