The Chicago Fire have added defender Kendall Burks to the roster through the 2023 Major League Soccer season with options for 2024 and 2025. 

The defender joins after being selected as the 11th overall pick of the 2022 MLS SuperDraft. 

“Kendall is a talented young player who we believe has the tools to compete for playing time in multiple positions during his rookie season,” sporting director Georg Heitz said in a release. 

“We’re very pleased that he has decided to begin his professional career in Chicago, despite having options to play overseas, and look forward to seeing his continued growth within our environment.”

Burks is set to kick off his professional career after time at the California State University, Bakersfield and the University of Washington. During his collegiate run, he helped the University of Washington reach the Division 1 NCAA National Championship game.

The defender also trained overseas with English Championship side Nottingham Forest this winter.
