Former Real Boston Rams forward Dominique Badji signed a contract with the Colorado Rapids on Wednesday following a successful preseason trial.

Badji, 22, was drafted by the Rapids in the fourth round (67th overall) of the 2015 MLS SuperDraft. He scored twice for the squad during the preseason, and assisted on Colorado’s opening goal against the Revolution on Feb. 21.

“We thought he could bring something to the group,” Rapids head coach Pablo Mastroeni said in a club release on Wednesday. “Once he settled in with us he really found his game and showed his qualities. He is a dynamic player, good in the air and can finish well with both feet. He is a good guy, on and off the field.”

The speedy forward spent last summer with the Rams, where he scored a goal and added an assist in six matches with the squad.

Badji attended Boston University, and was named 2014 Patriot League Offensive Player of the Year following an eight-goal, four-assist season with the Terriers.

    I am wondering why the revs good not have signed this player if he had been playing in a local team ? Scouting report good in the air? This is what the revs have been missing over the years a attacking player a forward who can score a goal with his head? All these tall lanky forwards the REVS have picked UP over the YEARS never scored a goal with there head ? TWELLMAN had the full package???????
