The Houston Dynamo selected D Dylan Remick in the first stage of the Major League Soccer Re-Entry Draft, the club announced today.


Remick has played in 44 career games with Seattle Sounders FC, making 32 starts over four seasons at left back. The 25-year-old saw action in 11 games with six starts for the eventual MLS Cup Champions this season, including two of the three matchups between Seattle and the Dynamo this year.


Naturally left-footed, Remick switched from center back to left back at Brown University. He was a state-level sprinter in high school in Illinois in addition to his exploits on the pitch. He joined MLS as a second-round pick (35th overall) by Seattle in the 2013 MLS SuperDraft.


To be eligible for selection in the Re-Entry Draft, a player must either be out of contract or had his contract option declined and either be at least 23 years old with a minimum of three years of MLS experience or at least 25 with a minimum of four years of league experience. Players who are eligible for free agency are not included in the Re-Entry Draft.


The Re-Entry Draft order was determined by the reverse order of the final standings of the 2016 season, taking into account postseason performance. The Dynamo held the second pick in the draft order and made the first selection of the draft after Chicago passed with the first selection.


With the addition of Remick, the Dynamo now have 16 players on the first-team roster for the 2017 season.
