SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Sacramento Republic FC announced on Wednesday the signing of 2016 MLS SuperDraft selection Chase Minter for the 2016 USL season.
A former standout for the Ventura County Fusion in the PDL, Minter was selected with the 21st overall pick of the SuperDraft by Columbus Crew SC in January. Also a standout for Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Minter will provide a wide threat for Republic FC as he starts his rookie season.
“We are delighted to bring in Chase, a player we found at Cal Poly while scouting the college system,” said Republic FC Head Coach and Technical Director Paul Buckle. “He is a player that can play two or three positions, but mainly as a left winger. He is full of energy, has an incredible work rate, but is also very comfortable on the ball.”
