Kris Reaves - FC Dallas - Univ. of Portland


FC Dallas announced the signing of University of Portland defender Kris Reaves to a Homegrown Player contract on Wednesday, continuing the club’s tradition of grooming young talent from within. Reaves becomes the 20th Homegrown in FCD history.

A 6-foot-2, 160-pound center back who seems likely to be auditioned at fullback at the professional level, Reaves spent two of his four NCAA seasons at Wake Forest before transferring to UP ahead of his junior year.

A native of Duluth, Georgia, Reaves joined FCD’s academy in 2012 and played alongside current FCD and US national team midfielder Kellyn Acosta, occasionally featuring in Dallas’ reserve team during his final two years as a youth player.
