The Philadelphia Union added another player from their 2017 MLS SuperDraft class on Friday with the signing of former West Virginia star Jack Elliott.

The 6-foot-5 defender and midfielder was selected in the fourth round with the 77th overall pick in January.

“When you look at Jack, the first thing you notice is his height, an asset that we believe will serve him well as a professional,” Sporting Director Earnie Stewart said in a news release. “He is a good passer who reads the game well. He has performed well in preseason and we look forward to working with him this season and beyond.”
