It was probably the worst kept secret possible. The Crew is VERY thin on defense. Crew academy has what could possibly be a first round SuperDraft pick in it's midst. It doesn't hurt that he is also a senior who has applied his skills under the prolific direction of Caleb Porter at the University of Akron.

I doubt that it was a hard decision for the Crew to want to bring Barson into the fold immediately. Barson led the Akron Zips in minutes played in 2010 as a sophomore when they emerged with a national championship. He was soon named team captain by Porter for both his junior and senior years in acknowledgment of his leadership and dedication on and off the field.

The signing of Baron brings the total number of homegrown players on the first team roster to five, joining Aaron Horton, Ben Speas, Matt Lampson, and Wil Trapp.
