The New York Red Bulls have signed 2018 draft pick Tom Barlow to an MLS contract.

Drafted in the second round (39th overall) out of Wisconsin in the 2018 MLS Super Draft, Barlow has scored 18 goals in 34 games with New York Red Bulls II.  

“Tom has earned a spot on our First Team roster with his play on the field, which is a result of hard work and commitment day in and day out,” said Denis Hamlett, Red Bulls Sporting Director. “When we drafted Tom in 2018 we liked him as a player, and now we have seen how he fits within our team and within our playing style.”

Chris Armas, Red Bulls head coach, added the team has seen rapid growth from Barlow. “Tom is athletic, honest, but also intelligent and this makes him a consistent attacking threat up the field,” he said.

In four years at Wisconsin, Barlow made 76 starts with 78 total appearances. The St. Louis native finished his collegiate career with 23 goals and 15 assists. He was named to the Big Ten All-Freshman team in 2014.
