Two weeks removed from the 2016 MLS SuperDraft, the Revolution have agreed to terms with first-round pick Jordan McCrary.
A four-year starter at North Carolina, McCrary—the 10th overall pick in the draft—could fill a major void on the right side of Jay Heaps' back line. He will likely compete for a starting spot out of the gate, seeking to jump veteran Darrius Barnes and unpolished London Woodberry on Jay Heaps' depth chart.
McCrary will sport jersey number three, per Revolution Online Host Jeff Lemieux.

As a freshman, McCrary led North Carolina to the NCCA College Cup, earning All-ACC Freshman Team and College Soccer News Freshman All-American honors for his standout performance. McCrary has also appeared for the U.S. National Team program at the U-15, U-17, U-18, and U-20 levels.
Per MLS and club policy, terms of McCrary's deal will not be disclosed.
