Sounders Release Camp Roster

Sounders Release Camp Roster

A slew of USL Sounders fill out the MLS expansion side Sounder’s training camp roster. Already one of the former USL Sounders have been signed to a MLS contract. But notably on the list is Freddy Montero.

The possibility of getting Montero is big news for Seattle. He would add a lot to their attack.

The defense though did just get a little better for the Sounders. Defender Taylor Graham signed with the expansion side, adding another player from Seattle’s former USL franchise. His signing was announced yesterday at the first day of camp.

Graham joins Sebastien Le Toux, Sanna Nyassi and Chris Eylander as former USL Sounders now under contract with the MLS squad.

A few others could join as the following USL Sounders are in camp:

Alcaraz-Cuellar, Hugo
Besagno, Nik (was on loan with Seattle last year)
Cascio, Jason
Dragavon, Ben
Fishbaugher, John
Jackson, Danny
Kante, Youssouf
Levesque, Roger
O’Brien, Leighton
Sakuda, Kevin
Scott, Zach
Schmid, Andre
Tomlinson, Craig
Treschuk, Kenji
West, Adam

Now it should be noted that most if not all of these former USL Sounders are currently on trial with the club as they look to fill out their roster before the start of the season. More than likely only a few will end up with the MLS side when it is all said and done. I do love seeing the USL players getting a shot with the MLS side.

Any names you see getting signed by the expansion side?
