[HOMEGROWN WATCH]Real Salt Lake signed 17-year-old defender Justen Glad as its seventh Homegrown Player. Glad joins the first team after spending two years at the RSL AZ residency program in Casa Grande, Ariz. The Tucson product had previously spent time with the U.S. under-17 national team.

Glad was a major contributor on the RSL-AZ U-16 team that won the 2012-13 Developmental Academy championship and was named to the Western Conference season-ending starting XI.

To make room for Glad, RSL released Joey Dillon, who was selected in the third round of the 2014 MLS SuperDraft, from its 30-player roster.

Glad is the 16th player signed by an MLS club to a Homegrown contract this year. Just three players, all ex-collegians, have played so far.
