Here's what Sounders coach Sigi Schmid had to say tonight about the club brining in midfielder Stephen Okai, who had been selected by Philadelphia with the 31st overall pick in the spring SuperDraft:
"He got drafted by Philly," Schmid said. :He was a guy that we liked on our combine, so we figured that we still had some days here. We’re going to need some numbers to make our game work on Saturday, so we wanted to bring him in and take a look at him and see if what we saw at our combine is something that he has as he steps up and plays against MLS competition."
