FC Dallas agree to Homegrown Player deal with Woodberry

By IVES GALARCEP

FC Dallas is two weeks away from having some interesting decisions to make at the 2013 MLS Draft, but they will head into that event having already landed two quality college players.

Dallas has reached an agreement to sign Maryland defender London Woodberry to a Homegrown Player contract, sources confirmed to SBI on Thursday.

Woodberry joins South Carolina forward Bradlee Baladez as players to reach Homegrown Player deals with FC Dallas this off-sason.

Woodberry was regarded as one of the better defenders in the nation in 2012, and would have projected as a first-round pick had he been made available in the 2013 MLS Draft. A centerback for Maryland in 2013, Woodberry projects more as a right back on the pro level, but should help FC Dallas with his versatility.

FC Dallas will look to add even more young talent at the MLS Draft, where they hold the No. 7 overall pick.
