Krystian Witkowski has signed a contract with the Philadelpia Union, according to Ted Philipakos, his agent.

The 2012 Supplemental Draft second rounder (thirty second overall) became the second member of the Union's draft class to sign with the team and MLS (the other being Chandler Hoffman, who signed a Generation Adidas contract prior to the SuperDraft). Piotr Nowak, the Union's head coach, has said recently that he believed that the team would sign the remaining rookies with the team in Florida.

A former Polish under-18 international, Witkowski was a star at Marist during his collegiate career. He was awarded three consecutive All-MAAC First Team selections, in part for scoring 21 times, and assisting on 19 other goals, in 71 games at Marist. The 21-year-old is the first ever Marist alumnus to sign a professional contract with MLS.

Witkowski holds both Polish and American citizenship, meaning that he will not count as an international player on the Union's roster. The Union have one international roster spot open currently, acquired in the trade that sent former midfielder Kyle Nakazawa to the LA Galaxy.
