Opare took a major step forward in 2017 setting career highs in games played and games started, with 26 and 25 respectively. But given the addition of Frederic Brillant to the Black-and-Red, it will be a contested battle for minutes in the newly bolstered D.C. United backline.
COLLEGE: Played four years (2009-12) at the University of Michigan. Named to Big Ten All-Freshman team. Named second team all-Big Ten as a junior.
