Today has been an exciting day to be a Portland Timbers fan. First, earlier this morning, we received confirmation that Colombian central defender Hanyer Mosquera has joined the squad. As a big center back with experience he'll be invaluable in helping the Timbers shore up some of those defensive gaffes that were far too prevalent last season.
But that's not where the fun stopped. Soon after the official announcement of Mosquera was the MLS Supplemental Draft where the Timbers chose four players from Universities around the nation. Here's the exact list of players chosen:
- Ryan Kowaluk - MF - University of Portland
- Miguel Ibarra - MF - UC Irvine
- Doug Herrick - GK - St. Mary's
- Logan McDaniel - MF - Loyola
