Sounders Insider

Sounders "very interested" in UW star Darwin Jones, but he's still a Husky for now

UW star Darwin Jones has indicated strongly that he's going to become a Sounders, but coach Sigi Schmid stressed today that Jones has not yet signed with the club.

"We haven't signed Darwin Jones. He's still in college, so we can't talk to him at this stage. But obviously he's a homegrown player that we've had and monitored for a while. He's trained with us during his off-seasons from college, and he's a player that we're very interested in. But right now he's still finishing up with the University of Washington. We hope that he finished his Pac-(12) run really well and that they go as far as possible in the NCAA playoffs and possibly win it. But he's definitely somebody who's on our radar.
