CARSON, Calif. (Tuesday, June 2, 2015) – LA Galaxy have signed goalkeeper Andrew Wolverton, the club announced today. Wolverton, a fourth-round selection by the Galaxy in the 2015 MLS SuperDraft, joins the team after a four-year standout career at Penn State. Per club and MLS policy, additional terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“Andrew is a talented young player,” said Head Coach and General Manager Bruce Arena. “He will give our team depth at the goalkeeper position going forward.”

The LA Galaxy selected Wolverton in Round 4 (82nd overall) of the 2015 MLS SuperDraft in January. The 21-year old goalkeeper spent four years in net at Penn State University, compiling a 38-23-8 record as a starter while recording 225 saves and 32 shutouts and a .53 goals against average. During his senior season, he earned honors on the 2014 All Big-Ten Second Team, recording 64 saves and nine shutouts in 19 matches.
