The signings keep on coming as New York Red Bull II announced its latest acquisition — defender Jordan Scarlett. Scarlett was selected in the third round of the 2017 MLS draft and will play for the USL team.

“We were excited to get Jordan in the draft,” Coach John Wolyniec said. “He has shown to be a guy that has a lot of talent playing for a local team, Iona College, and we’ve gotten to see him a few times. It’s great to get him with the team and hopefully we can get him moving towards an MLS contract for next year.”

Scarlet, 21, grew up in the Bronx and played 69 games (59 as a starter) over four years at Iona. He made the All-MAAC First Team as a senior and finished his collegiate career with the 10th most minutes in school history.

Scarlett is the third defender signed in two days, joining David Abidor and Andrew Lombard.
