FC Dallas locked down some major defensive depth today, officially announcing the signing of Maryland defender London Woodberry to a Homegrown contract.
Woodberry, who was a member of the inaugural FC Dallas Academy team, was projected to be a first-round draft pick had he not been Homegrown eligible. A center back in his last couple years at Maryland, Woodberry figures to slot in at outside back for FC Dallas filling the gap left by the departure of Carlos Rodriguez.
A two-time All-ACC pick, Woodberry had somewhat of a breakout year as a senior, earning third-team All-American honors.
Additionally, FCD announced that they've come to terms with center back Stephen Keel. Selected in the second round of the Re-Entry Draft, Keel has spent the last two years with New York and figures to be in the mix at center back.
