Goff is reporting that DCU signed its first Colorado School of Mines Oredigger in Craig Thompson, a 5'8" 160 lb. right-sided midfielder who played forward in college. He was the 2007 Rocky Mountain Athletic League player of the year and scored 17 goals in 2007. He was drafted by Houston in the 2008 Supplemental draft but did not make the team as he missed pre-season training camp while he finished school and then just had a quick trial with the Dynamo. He played a few reserve game appearances for DCU as a guest player this season. With recent injuries to Quaranta and Mediate, he may get some playing time with US Open Cup and more reserve games on the horizon. He takes the developmental roster spot vacated when Jeff Curtin retired.
