Sounders sign rookie defender Dylan Remick
Last week, Sounders FC coach Sigi Schmid referred to rookie defender Dylan Remick as someone the team “definitely” wanted to keep.
Seattle made that official Friday in signing the second-round pick in January’s MLS SuperDraft. Per league and team policy, terms were not disclosed, but expect him to be an off-budget player as a minimum salary.
“I’ve been very happy with Dylan,” Schmid said in a news release. “He is very good athletically, and he has the ability to play any position across the backline. He’s a good passer and he’s improving every day, and he’s definitely someone that we think we can build on for the future.”
Remick, 21, has played left back, right back, left mid and center mid in preseason games so far, from what I can tell. He was an All-Ivy League first team selection from 2010-12 at Brown University and picked 35th overall by the Sounders.
Schmid has referred to Remick and academy product DeAndre Yedlin as potentially the team’s outside backs of the futre.
What do you think of the signing?
