Honduras defender Brayan Garcia to trial with D.C. United

Looks like there will be a Catracho to add to a Tico or two in Florida.

Renan Nunez, a radio reporter from Honduras, had this interesting note regarding a possible D.C. United trialist:

In doing a bit of digging, Garcia is a 22-year old left back who plays for CDS Vida in the Honduran top division. He came up through Motagua and even saw a couple of CONCACAF Champions League games in 2011, and started to see his first national team caps with the Honduras national team last year. He made the rosters for the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup and Olympic Qualifying tournaments for Honduras but did not make an appearance. Garcia thinks the trial will be two to three weeks.

Garcia's position would presumably mean that Taylor Kemp may see some sort of challenge for the left back position, but also could just as likely mean that Ben Olsen and company want to slowly expand the reach of talent evaluation, and with Garcia in camp joining Costa Rica's Ariel Rodriguez and Chile's Santiago Dittborn on trial, things definitely have an international flavor to them at the moment.
