A different Jordan signs a homegrown deal with Seattle Sounders
While the Sounders still await Jordan Morris’s decision on their record-setting homegrown offer, the Seattle club has signed Denver defensive midfielder Jordan Schweitzer to a homegrown deal.
Schweitzer started 70 of his 73 appearances over four seasons with the Pioneers and was a three-time All-Summit League First Team selection. Schweitzer and the Pioneers backline had a banner year allowing only 0.40 goals per game while recording 12 clean and finishing the regular season as the only unbeaten Division 1 program.
The Everett, Washington native is the first homegrown signing for the Sounders since Darwin Jones signed last January and the sixth overall. He gives Seattle four active homegrown players on the roster.
Previous homegrown signings include Jones (Washington), Aaron Kovar (Stanford), Victory Mansaray, Sean Okoli (Wake Forest) and DeAndre Yedlin (Akron).
