HOW ACQUIRED: Selected in the first round (2nd overall) of the 2011 MLS SuperDraft on January 13, 2011

There have been few players to essentially grow up in MLS who’ve made a deeper, more lasting impact on the game’s aesthetic on these shores than Darlington Nagbe. The former Akron star dazzled with the Timbers almost immediately, earning the MLS Goal of the Year award in his rookie season in 2011 with a dizzying juggle-and-blast golazo. That set the tone for a SportsCenter Top 10-headlining career that’s allowed him to become not only one of the most skilled players in MLS, but one of the most prized young players in Jurgen Klinsmann’s U.S. national team setup as the team drives toward the 2018 World Cup.

INTERNATIONAL: Born in the West African nation of Liberia, Nagbe settled in the U.S. at 11 and ultimately earned U.S. citizenship in 2015 to pave the way for his first U.S. cap on Nov. 13, 2015.

COLLEGE: Nagbe burst onto the scene with Akron in 2008 under Caleb Porter and never looked back. In three seasons, he scored 19 goals and chipped in 19 assists in 73 appearances and earned numerous national awards for his performances.
