Early life

Born in New York City, Argudo attended Francis Lewis High School in Fresh Meadows, Queens. He was a four-year varsity soccer player for the Patriots, finishing his prep career with 13 goals and 20 assists.[1] At club level, he played at the Albertson Academy under Paul Riley, who was serving as head coach of the New York Fury at the time.[2] He also played for New York Ecuador in the NYC Futsal League.[3]

Argudo committed to play college soccer at Elon, one of five members of the last recruiting class for head coach Darren Powell before his resignation.[4]

College and amateur

Argudo made his debut for new head coach Chris Little and Elon on August 29, 2014, starting against Stetson in the John Rennie/Nike Classic.[5] He went on to appear 18 times as a freshman, starting 10 matches and tallying a goal and an assist. His first collegiate goal came on October 11, the third tally of a 5–0 victory over Northeastern.[1] As a sophomore, Argudo appeared 21 times for an Elon team that was Colonial Athletic Association co-regular season champions and qualified for the NCAA Tournament for just the fourth time in the school's history. Although he did not score, he provided two assists during the season and started both NCAA Tournament matches.[1] After two seasons, 39 games, and one goal for the Phoenix, Argudo transferred to Wake Forest.[6]

Argudo debuted for the Demon Deacons on August 26, 2016, coming off the bench in a 1–0 defeat against Saint Louis.[7] He worked his way into the starting lineup by September, tallying an assist against NC State in his first start for Wake Forest.[2] Argudo scored for the first time in the second round of the NCAA Tournament, helping his team defeat Coastal Carolina 2–0.[2] He tallied one goal in 25 appearances on the season as the Demon Deacons fell to Stanford in the national championship game.[8] As a senior, Argudo had his best collegiate season: eight goals and six assists in 23 matches. He scored five times in the season's first four games, scored the game-winning goal against Elon on October 17,[9] and converted during the penalty shootout in the ACC Tournament championship game.[10] Argudo was named to the All-Atlantic Coast Conference Third Team following the season;[11] he concluded his two seasons at Wake Forest with nine goals in 48 appearances.[2]

Carolina Dynamo

Before his senior season at Wake Forest, Argudo appeared for Premier Development League club Carolina Dynamo. He made his debut on May 25, 2017 in a 2–0 defeat against North Carolina FC U23.[12] He found his scoring touch in the back half of the season, with goals on June 17 against Wilmington Hammerheads,[13] and on July 13 against Tobacco Road FC.[14] Argudo finished with two goals from 10 appearances in his lone season with Carolina.[12]

Club career Columbus Crew SC

Initially, Argudo was not selected to take part in the 2018 MLS Combine; however, he was added to the Combine roster just two days before the event began after an injury to Drew Skundrich.[15] On January 21, Columbus Crew SC drafted Argudo with the 67th overall pick of the 2018 MLS SuperDraft.[16] After taking part in the team's preseason camp, he officially signed with Columbus on March 1.[17] Argudo made his professional debut just two days later, replacing Pedro Santos in the 77th minute of a season-opening victory against Toronto FC, the defending MLS Cup champions.[18] He missed three matches in April due to a MCL sprain[19] but returned to the pitch on May 9 to earn his first start of the season in a victory over Philadelphia Union.[20] Argudo went on to appear 21 times across all competitions in his rookie season, including two appearances in the 2018 MLS Cup Playoffs. The club picked up his contract option on December 9, 2018.[21]

Loan to Hartford

In order to get game minutes,[22] Argudo was sent on loan to USL Championship club Hartford Athletic on April 11, 2019. He was joined in Hartford by Crew teammate Jon Kempin.[23] Argudo made his club debut two days later, starting and playing 90 minutes in a 4–1 defeat against Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC.[24] After appearing just once more for Hartford, a midweek defeat to New York Red Bulls II, he was recalled by the Crew on April 23.[25]

Personal life

Argudo was born in the United States to a Colombian mother and an Ecuadorian father. He lived in Ecuador as a child and possesses passports from all three countries. He has expressed interest in representing either Colombia or Ecuador saying, "If there is an opportunity, obviously one would accept the possibilities when they arrive."[26]
