Arsene Wenger might consider his namesake Andrew Wenger in his search for a full back. Wenger, a Duke University standout shows why he is the top pick in this year’s MLS SuperDraft. He is listed as a defender/forward and you can see why. He has impressive ball skills, attacks down the flanks with speed, and finishes impressively.
Wenger grabbed the spotlight at Duke playing center back his first two seasons but moved up front in his final year out of necessity. He provided an instant impact, scoring 17 goals, and contributing to 8 more playing in an unfamiliar spot. He led the ACC in points and goals scored and was fourth overall in the nation in points earning him the Hermann trophy. He has national ambitions participating in the U23 national camp ahead of the 2012 Olympics qualification.
He joins the expansion Montreal Impact. Here are the rest of the picks in the draft. Today, the MLS concludes the supplemental draft. Watch out for Kohei Yamada, Jason Banton, Gienir Garcia, Arthur Ivo, and Evans Frimpong.
