The Swope Park Rangers have signed winger Killian Colombie heading into the 2019 USL Championship season, the club announced on Tuesday. The signing is pending league and federation approval.
Colombie, 23, has spent the last four years at Iona College in New York, tallying 15 goals and six assists in 72 appearances for the Gaels. He produced a career-best seven goals and three assists as a senior in 2018, culminating in All-MAAC First Team and United Soccer Coaches NCAA DI Men's All-East Regional Second Team honors.
The Paris, France native also enjoyed a successful campaign with Houston-based USL League Two side Albion Hurricanes FC Royals last year, posting a joint conference-best 10 goals to go along with five assists for the 7-7-0 side.
Colombie spent time in Paris Saint-Germain’s Academy as a youth player, and recently trained with Scottish club Hearts of Midlothian and MLS sides New York Red Bulls and San Jose Earthquakes. Colombie joined the Rangers on trial at the start of preseason and started the side’s only scrimmage so far, a 5-0 victory over Barton Community College on February 2.
