FRISCO, Texas – FC Dallas signed 2012 Supplemental Draft pick Alex Lee on Tuesday, March 13, 2012.
FC Dallas took Lee with its first pick in the 2012 MLS Supplement Draft. Lee captained Maryland to a 14-4-3 season in 2011. The 5’10” native of Rockville, Md. helped lead the Terps to a 1.05 goals against average last season. Lee picked up a game-winning assist in a 2-1 overtime victory against Rutgers on Oct. 4 and started all but three contests for Maryland in 2011. He finished his college career with four assists in 65 appearances.
“We were really surprised Alex was still available with the 11th pick,” said Hyndman. “He has really lived up to our expectations after seeing him during his senior season at Maryland. He reminds me a lot of Zach Loyd. He is versatile. He can play as either a center back or right back. Alex is very strong defensively and his abilities getting forward and joining the attack improve every day.”
