The Revs have officially signed defender Darrius Barnes to a Senior Roster spot.
Captain Obvious checks in with an obligatory quote:
“We’re pleased to add Darrius to the squad,” Revolution Vice President of Player Personnel Michael Burns said. “He showed well during preseason training, was eager to learn from our veterans. We’re looking forward to him developing in our system.”
A friend of mine who watches a lot of ACC soccer provides a quick scouting report:
“Physically, he’s everything you’re looking for – big, strong, athletic, good in the air. But it always seemed to me like he was less than the sum of his parts. He was prone to some big mistakes, and I always thought he turned the ball over way too much.”
