Names like Adam Morgan, Raheem Sterling, Marc Pelosi, Andre Wisdom, and Stephen Sama (to name a few) have been making headway for quite some time now, but are only now receiving the recognition they deserve.
Adam Morgan scored Liverpool's only goal in a 1-1 draw against MLS club Toronto FC during the Reds' preseason tour of the United States.
Raheem Sterling made his first-team debut against Wigan Athletic at the tender age of 17 to become the second-youngest Liverpool player ever to grace the Anfield turf.
American starlet Marc Pelosi has yet to appear in the senior squad, but since his move from local club De Anza Force, the California native has looked more than capable in academy and reserve team matches.
Andre Wisdom has been on the cusp of a first-team call up for a while now, but still has yet to make that elusive first appearance.
However, the England U21 defender regularly trains at Melwood with the likes of Daniel Agger and Martin Skrtel which will provide him with invaluable experience.
Stephen Sama was snatched up from Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2009 and spent his first season with the Liverpool academy playing as a striker.
He has since transitioned to center back where his height and great passing range have served him well.
Sama made several first-team appearances in the Reds' tour of the USA and was impressive throughout.
