1/26/2010: Crew Selection Kwaku Nyamekye At Rangers

Crew fourth round, draft selection Kwaku Nyamekye (a teammate of forward Andre Akpan at Harvard) is over on a week trial with Rangers of the Scottish Premier League. Nyamekye, born to Ghanian parents in Geneva, Switzerland; has a Swiss passport and therefore can play anywhere in Europe. But, the Crew took a flyer on Nyamekye, just in case the Rangers trial fails and Nyamekye doesn't have any better options for this season. The Crew will hold onto Nyamekye's rights in MLS for the next two years.

Nyamekye is a 6'1, 200 pound player that apparently plays both defense and forward. He would likely come well in handy with that frame.
