The tall striker was selected by the Monreal Impact in this year's Supplemental Draft.The Columbus Crew announced they have signed forward Aaron Schoenfeld after acquiring his rights from the Montreal Impact in exchange for a conditional pick in the 2013 MLS Supplemental Draft. Per league policy no further terms of the deal were disclosed.
The 6-foot-4, 21-year-old was originally drafted by Montreal in the second round of the 2012 MLS Supplemental Draft. He finished his career at East Tennessee State University with 20 goals and 10 assists in 72 games.
“Aaron is a young talented forward with a lot of potential,” said Crew head coach Robert Warzycha. “He has a good touch and a good nose for the goal. He showed us that nothing is going to distract him from achieving his goals.”
“I’m really excited for the opportunity,” Schoenfeld said. “I found a fit here with Columbus. I enjoy the team and the city and I think it is going to be a great season.”
To make room for Schoenfeld on the roster, defender Rich Balchan was placed on the disabled list.
