[NWSL COLLEGE DRAFT] North Carolina teammates Crystal Dunn and Kealia Ohai went 1-2 to Washington and Houston in Friday's NWSL College Draft. The first six picks were all members of the 2012 U.S. U-20 World Championship team.

Dunn was no surprise at No. 1, but Ohai was taken ahead of Julie Johnston at No. 2. Johnston and Dunn were the only players in the draft currently in camp with the senior national team.

"I am so excited about today's draft,” said Houston head coach Randy Waldrum, who left his job at Notre Dame to coach the Dash. “I couldn't have asked for things to fall into place so well. It was an amazing day for the Dash. Starting with the selection of Kealia Ohai, we got one of the nation’s best forwards. She has great pace, is extremely athletic, and can really stretch defenses with her speed. She is a proven player at the U-20 and U-23 national team level, and will be a great addition to our team.”
