Sounders FC signs Evan Brown

Here’s the announcement from Sounders FC:

Wake Forest Defender Chosen with 16th Pick in MLS SuperDraft

RENTON, WASH. – Seattle Sounders FC signed defender Evan Brown, the 16th overall selection in the 2009 MLS SuperDraft out of Wake Forest. Per Major League Soccer and club policy, terms were not disclosed.

“We talked highly about Evan on draft day and we’re very pleased with his continued improvement,” said Sounders FC head coach Sigi Schmid. “He is an exciting, attacking fullback who will add a lot to our team.”

Brown, 21, was taken by Seattle with the first pick in the draft’s second round on January 15. An outside back, Brown helped Wake Forest (21-2-1) hold opponents scoreless 14 times in 2008. He scored two goals, including the game-winning goal in an ACC Tournament quarterfinal victory over NC State, and added eight assists as a senior.

The Demon Deacons reached the NCAA College Cup each of his final three seasons, winning the national championship in 2007. Wake finished the 2008 regular season ranked No. 1 in the country. Brown was among six Wake players chosen in the draft.

Sounders FC opens its inaugural MLS season on March 19, hosting the New York Red Bulls in a nationally televised game at the Xbox Pitch at Qwest Field.
