Zardes projected first
MLSSoccer.com, the official website for Major League Soccer, projects Cal State Bakersfield junior Gyasi Zardes to be the top pick in the MLS SuperDraft in January.
Zardes has seven goals and six assists in nine games for the Roadrunners this year. The website mentions that the L.A. Galaxy have rights to Zardes because of geography but that rumors also continue to swirl that European clubs could try to sign him.
