[MLS SUPERDRAFT]Louisville and Creighton led all teams with four players taken in Thursday's MLS SuperDraft.

Louisville had three players -- the most of any team -- taken in the first round: Nick De Leon, Austin Berry and Colin Rolfe.

Creighton was one of five teams -- along with national champion North Carolina, Connecticut, UC Santa Barbara and UCLA -- that had two players picked in the first round with the selection of Ethan Finlay and Andrew Duran. Bluejay left back Tyler Polakwas the last of nine Generation adidas players selected, going to New England with the 22nd pick in the second round.

Thirty-seven of the 38 picks were Division I players. The lone exception: JC player Sebastian Velasquez (Spartanburg Methodist), who was reunited with former youth club teammate, Enzo Martinez, at Real Salt Lake. Twenty-six players had spent time in the summer PDL league.

    I think that is harsh, Ric. anti-west coach bias may be true, but not when it comes to MLS and the draft. I bet UCLA is in the top 5 of colleges with the most active MLS players. And since UCLA can field a top ten team with 80 percent of its roster being California kids, that means lots of CA players in MLS. contrast that with a school like UCONN which gets all its future MLS picks from the Caribbean. Maybe UCLA would have more in MLS if they started throwing better players to the league than Chance Myers!
