D.C. United has announced that they’ve officially signed 2013 first-round pick Taylor Kemp. Kemp was selected 17th overall out of the University of Maryland, and brings a solid resume to United.

The 22-year-old played on the U-18 and U-20 Men’s National Teams in 2009 and 2011, respectively. As a freshman, Kemp started all but one game for the Terps, and was awarded All-ACC Freshman honors as well as a Soccer America All-Freshman Team selection. Kemp built on his early success as a sophomore, contributing to a Maryland back line that helped post the most shutouts (15) in Terrapins history. Kemp recorded one goal and four assists as a key player on that Maryland squad, being named Second Team All-ACC.  Most recently, Kemp served as a senior captain with the Terps in 2012, logging six assists in 12 games while once again being named to the All-ACC Second Team.
