A face familiar to MLS fans joined the Revolution for their stay in Casa Grande, Ariz. as journeyman defender Jeb Brovsky was among three players to join the club’s contingent of preseason trialists in the Copper State.

Brovsky, along with Southern New Hampshire defender Dominic Samuel and Fairfield keeper Matt Turner, joined the Revolution for preseason activities on Wednesday.

Brovsky, 27, has played in 104 games for three clubs (Vancouver, Montreal, and New York City) during his five-year career in MLS, and was briefly loaned by Montreal to Strømsgodset IF in the Norwegian Tippeligaen in 2014. He spent the 2015 season with New York City, where he played 15 games and recorded an assist.

The 6-1, 170 lbs. defender spent time at center back and fullback for City last year before the club declined his option during the offseason. He was available for the Re-Entry Draft, but was not selected, thus making him available to any club on a first-come, first-served basis.

Samuel, 21, played in 21 games and scored three goals during his senior year at Southern New Hampshire. He was named to Northeast-10 First Team All-Conference Team and Northeast-10 All-Championship Team in 2014.

Turner, 21, posted 13 shutouts in his 18 starts during his junior year in 2014, and seven shutouts in 16 starts during his senior year in 2015.

The additions of Brovsky, Samuel, and Turner bring the total number of trialists in Revolution camp to eight. The club currently has 21 players under contract, and seven open roster spots.
