New York, NY (Sports Network) - Red Bull New York made just one selection in
last week's MLS SuperDraft, but the club appears to have beefed up its roster
with a total of five picks in Tuesday's Supplemental Draft, including the top
overall pick, Ryan Clark from Monmouth University.
Clark, 22, is a naturally left-footed player who traditionally operates in the
midfield but may also compete for the left-back position. He became the second
midfielder taken by the Red Bulls in the draft process this year after the
club selected Georgetown University's Ian Christianson with the 22nd overall
pick in the SuperDraft.
In the Supplemental Draft, the Red Bulls also selected Michael Bustamante from
Boston University (13th overall), Ben Fisk from the University of Washington
(32nd overall), Marc Citron from Providence College (34th overall), Stephane
Diop from the University of Connecticut (51st overall) and Andrew Ribeiro from
Creighton University (70th overall).
Chivas USA continued its trend of taking players of Hispanic heritage by
selecting Jose Diaz of UC Riverside with the second overall pick.
New Portland Timbers boss Caleb Porter showed a bit of bias with the club's
first pick in the Supplemental Draft. The former University of Akron coach
selected David Meves of the Zips with the third overall pick.
The New England Revolution, which took Louisville standout Andrew Farrell with
the top pick in the SuperDraft, added to its midfield with its first selection
in the Supplemental Draft, taking the University of Connecticut's Jossimar
Sanchez fourth overall.
Seattle Sounders FC rounded out the top five of Tuesday's draft, taking Will
Bates from the University of Virginia.
