The Chicago Fire announced on Tuesday the club had come to terms with USL-PRO goalkeeper Alec Kann.
"We’re pleased to add Alec to our roster," said Fire President of Soccer Operations Javier Leon in a statement. "We had the opportunity to observe Alec’s game for the past two seasons and he is a solid addition to our goalkeeping corps."
Kann will join the Fire from USL-PRO side Charleston Battery where he spent the 2012 season. Kann was a four-year standout at Furman University where he compiled a 37-16-10 record with 18 shutouts and a 1.00 goals against average in 65 starts.
The Georgia native earned National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) All-South Region honors, All-Southern Conference honors and NSCAA Scholar All-America accolades in 2011, a season in which he guided Furman to a 14-4-4 record and a berth in the NCAA tournament.
