RIO GRANDE VALLEY – The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) Vaqueros men’s soccer team learned on Tuesday that former student-athlete Bryant Farkarlun (2023) signed a Major League Soccer (MLS) contract with Austin FC.

Farkarlun joins the Austin FC first team on a contract guaranteed through the end of the 2024 season with options for 2025 and 2026 while also signing a loan agreement to Austin FC II, allowing him to appear in both MLS and MLS Next Pro matches.

Farkarlun was selected 31st overall in last year’s MLS superDraft becoming the third player in program history to be selected in the MLS SuperDraft after Kyle Edwards (2018-19) was drafted by the Houston Dynamo in the fourth round in 2020 and Reshaun Walkes (2020-21) was drafted by Toronto FC in the third round in 2022.

Farkarlun spent the 2024 preseason with the Austin FC first team scoring two goals and recording one assist. So far this season, Farkarlun has made 12 appearances with ATXFC II in MLS Next Pro and has scored two goals with three assists.

Farkarlun, who earned All-WAC First Team honors in 2023, played in 12 matches while making 11 starts for the Vaqueros and tied for the team lead with five goals and 10 points.
