Marcus Tracy, a player that would have been the prize of the 2009 MLS SuperDraft, is coming home to MLS.

For those who remember, the former Wake Forest striker had a stellar season in with the Demon Deacons before taking his trade to Europe, signing with Danish side Aalborg BK.

He was drafted by the Houston Dynamo back in the 2009 SuperDraft and offered a contract, which he turned down to join Aalborg. Given that more than two years have passed since the Dynamo drafted the 2008 Hermann Trophy winner, the club no longer holds the MLS rights to the player.

Things did not go so well in Denmark for Tracy. Injuries and lack of playing time were the problem for him. Tracy is now a free agent and he signed with MLS today.

He will find out his new MLS home in a weighted lottery that will be conducted on Thursday, Sept. 13. Clubs have until end of day on Wednesday to confirm whether they will participate in the lottery. Vancouver and Colorado are excluded from this lottery as they have won previous players through this system previously this season.
