The Homegrown signings continue for FC Dallas as they have signed their 18th HGP in defender Reggie Cannon.

The 18-year old won back-to-back national championships with the FC Dallas Academy before joining UCLA for his freshman season.

Cannon appeared in every game for the Bruins this fall. He finished the season third on the team in minutes played (1,753) and was named No. 8 on Top Drawer Soccer’s Midseason Top 100 Freshman Ranking as well as a member of their Freshman Best XI team.

Cannon is the third HGP signing this offseason. He is a natural outside back that could certainly compete for minutes in 2016. He will likely sit behind newly signed José Salvatierra in the depth charts.

FC Dallas’ roster now boasts 10 Homegrown players, eight of which call cities in Texas their hometown: Victor Ulloa (Wylie), Moises Hernandez (Seagoville), Kellyn Acosta (Plano), Aaron Guillen (El Paso), Paxton Pomykal (Lewisville), Jesus Ferreira (McKinney), Bryan Reynolds (Fort Worth) and Cannon (Grapevine).
