If one of his parents is American he is legitimately American. I have no problem with him choosing them in that case but also considering us a back up option if that does not work out especially since at the current time he is not even a Canadian citizen. It only bothers me when players choose to play for countries that they have weak ties to because it is better for their career. He is a legitimate American and not even a Canadian citizen at the moment.

I see what you're saying and I agree but the things is according to FIFA rules you have to be eligible to represent the nation before being provisionally cap-tied 

For example if he does play in the U17 CONCACAF Championship for the USMNT and he doesn't have his Canadian citizenship then I'm not sure he's still able to switch
