Left-footed creative midfield catalyst who some say is one-of-a-kind in the draft class of 2013.
What Scouts Say: "Very, very gifted soccer player. Left-footed. Very technical and very intelligent ... No one like him style-wise in the SuperDraft. A unique type of player … Finds great spots to find the ball in an attacking position ... Very, very good passer of the ball ... He lacks speed and overall athelticism but he makes up for that in other ways because he's a very, very good soccer player ... Understands the game and his left foot is lethal ... He can score goals and he's pretty crafty ... He is a game-changer, he sees things early ... Very good at breaking pressure ... He was San Diego's catalyst during NCAA run, setting up chances and dictating the rhythm of the game ... No one was able to stop him ... He's also got a work rate to his game and transitions well, but if he's up against someone with speed, he'll struggle ... If a team is patient and puts a premium on possession, he'll fit in really, really well … May need time to adjust to MLS similar to Rafael Baca in San Jose ... Similar to Eric Avila and can be compared to a left-footed Mauro Rosales."
College (San Diego): First-team All-WCC as a junior and senior ... Scored career-high nine goals as a senior as San Diego made it to the 2012 NCAA quarterfinals ... His 10 assists in 2012 were good for eighth best in the NCAAs ... Named WCC Player of the Year as a junior (2 goals, 5 assists) ... Led San Diego with seven assists as a sophomore in 2010 ... Started 10 of 13 matches he played in as a freshman in 2009.
