Bobby Howe's Jigsaw Puzzle Complete (?)


The Oregonian reported this morning the signing of the Timbers #1 draft pick Bryn Ritchie. He trained with the team on Wednesday after signing a 1 year contract.
This is what Bobby Howe had to say about Bryn in the recent timberlog interview.

"The other draft pick, Bryn Ritchie, could be a very special player, but he’s hurt at the moment so we can’t get him, but we’d love to have him here if we could. He would be the piece of the jigsaw puzzle that I think would make this a very well-rounded team."


and more from the official press release:

"Ritchie is an outstanding, dominant central defender," said Howe. "He is strong in the tackle and was one of the best headers of the ball in the college game. His talent has also been recognized by MLS where he was drafted by the Colorado Rapids. As Bryn is a native of Oregon, we are thrilled that he will be wearing our colors this season."


"We wanted to add a little more youth to the mix this season and I think we've done a good job of acquiring some of the best young talent in the country," said Jim Taylor, Timbers general manager. "With the addition of Bryn Ritchie, we now have signed three players who were drafted in this year's MLS SuperDraft; the other two being Erik Ozimek and Noah Delgado. Along with rookies McKinley Tennyson, Jake Sagare, and Ben Somoza, I think we have a great youth foundation to build on. All in all, we have a well-balanced team in terms of experience."
