Jimenez trained with the United States Under-17 national team at the USSF's Bradenton Academy from the Fall 2002 to Spring 2004, but because of an awkward birthdate did not compete in a World Championship. Upon graduating from Bradenton, Jimenez moved to the University of South Florida along with Rodrigo Hidalgo . At USF he played only one season of college soccer, appearing in 17 games and registering three goals and four assists, before turning professional by signing a Generation adidas contract with MLS.
Jimenez was selected 14th overall in the 2005 MLS SuperDraft by Chivas USA, a team dedicated to fielding a largely Hispanic, Spanish-speaking team in MLS.
