New York Red Bull II has signed MLS draft pick Ethan Kutler to a USL contract for the 2017 season. Kutler was drafted by the New York Red Bulls in the second round.
“Ethan has been with us during preseason since the draft, and he’s doing really well transitioning to a new position,” Coach John Wolyniec said. “We have a lot of hope and confidence that he’s going to continue to develop and take those next steps that he wishes to take.”
Kutler played four years for Colgate University where he scored 26 goals in 74 appearances.
New York Red Bull II start their season next week against at the Pittsburgh Riverhounds; the club plays its first game at Montclair State University on April 1.
