COLUMBUS – Columbus Crew SC today announced that it has signed 2017 Major League Soccer SuperDraft selection goalkeeper Logan Ketterer ahead of the 2017 MLS regular season. Ketterer (71st overall) has spent the 2017 preseason in training camp with the Black & Gold. Also on Monday, Crew SC announced the signing of fellow 2017 MLS SuperDraft selection Connor Maloney.
“We’d like to congratulate Logan and Connor on signing with Crew SC after working hard this preseason and integrating with the club,” said Sporting Director and Head Coach Gregg Berhalter. “We look forward to seeing their development during their first year in MLS.“
Ketterer played three seasons at Bradley University, making 51 appearances (16 starts).
