HUNTINGTON, W.Va. - Marshall's Travis Brent will play for the Portland Timbers' U23 team this summer before returning for his senior season in the fall.

Brent, a defender from Virginia Beach, Va., helped the Thundering Herd rank third in the nation in shutout percentage (0.59) and goals against average (0.52).

He is taking a similar route of former Marshall defender Sterling Flunder played for the same U23 Portland team in 2009. Since 2010, Flunder has played for the USL Pro team, Pittsburgh Riverhounds.
