Brown’s Remick Signs with Seattle

Former Brown University defender Dylan Remick became the latest New England-area college prospect to earn a professional contract after signing with the Seattle Sounders FC last week.

Remick was selected by the Sounders in the second round (35th overall) of last month’s SuperDraft. He featured centrally and on both wings for the club during the preseason, according to The Seattle Times writer Joshua Mayers.

“I’ve been very happy with Dylan,” Sounders head coach Sigi 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 was a three-time All-Ivy selection at Brown and was the first Bear to earn All-American honors since current Chicago Fire midfielder Jeff Larentowicz earned the honors in 2004. He helped lead the Bears to a 12-2-3 record in 2012, as well as back-to-back Sweet 16 appearances in 2010 and 2011. In his four years at Brown, he played in 71 games, scoring 6 goals and adding 12 assists.

In addition to Remick, another New England prospect – Boston University’s Michael Bustamante – also signed with the club that drafted him (New York) last week.
