Salazar, 18, has been in the Dynamo program for six years, having most recently played for the team's U-18 squad.
“Bryan is an exciting young player,” said Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear. “When he gets the ball, he is not afraid to run at defenders. He has put up some good numbers with our Academy teams and I think he has a very promising future. We want him to succeed as a person and a professional and we will do everything we can to make sure that happens.”
The 5-foot-9 Salazar becomes the fifth player Houston has signed to a Homegrown deal, joining goalkeeper Tyler Deric and midfielders Francisco Navas Cobo, Alex Dixon and Josue Soto. He is expected to finish high school and continue to play with the Dynamo Academy before joining the Dynamo full time this summer.
