The Columbus Crew signed goalkeeper Brady Scott for the 2022 MLS season, with options for 2023 and 2024.
The Crew selected Scott fourth overall in Stage 2 of the 2021 MLS Re-Entry Draft.
"We are pleased to welcome Brady to Columbus," said Columbus president and general manager Tim Bezbatchenko. "He gained valuable experience during his time in Germany, with the U.S. Youth National Team and within MLS, and we look forward to integrating him into to our goalkeeping corps."
Scott, 22, signed with Nashville SC in August 2020 but did not appear in any matches prior to being taken by Austin FC in the 2020 MLS Expansion Draft in December of that year. He appeared in seven matches while on loan to the USL's Memphis 901 FC during the 2021 season.
Scott began his professional career with German's FC Koln in July 2017. He recorded five shutouts in 29 matches for FC Koln II and two shutouts in three matches for FC Koln's Under-19 team. During the 2018 Concacaf U-20 Championship, Scott posted three shutouts and allowed just two goals in six matches.
