MOST COMMENTED

[MLS] The Columbus Crew won the rights to U.S. under-20 right back Korey Veeder in a weighted lottery held on Tuesday afternoon.

Four MLS clubs participated in the lottery for the 19-year-old Floridian: Columbus, Toronto FC, Seattle and Colorado.

A team's odds are based on its 2010 regular-season record and adjusted to take into account the number of teams participating in the lottery. A team is precluded in taking part in other lotteries in 2011 if it wins the rights to a player.

Veeder played for the Clearwater Chargers and spent time at the U.S. under-17 residency program.

He played for the D-2 Pro League's Crystal Palace Baltimore in 2010.

Other 2011 lottery winners: Philadelphia Union (Chris Agorsor), Real Salt Lake (Cody Arnoux) and the San Jose Earthquakes (Dave Bingham).
