A tenacious defensive midfielder who formed a formidable partnership with Darwin Ceren in the club's expansion season, Higuita lead the team in passing accuracy in 2015. Talented, as well as a battler, he looks set to have a long professional career, and Lions fans will be hoping he spends a lot of it in Orlando.
OUTSIDE MLS: Born and raised in Cali, Higuita spent four seasons in Colombia's top division. In 2014, Higuita experienced his most successful campaign as a Colombian professional, starting in 10 matches and scoring two goals.

Higuita was part of the Colombia squad that won the 2013 South American Youth Championship title and qualified for the FIFA U-20 World Cup, although he played just one game due to injury.
