CHICAGO – FC Cincinnati made the first MLS SuperDraft in the club’s history a memorable one, selecting Frankie Amaya with the No. 1 overall selection in the MLS SuperDraft at McCormick Place Friday.

Amaya became the sixth player in MLS SuperDraft history selected from UCLA with the first pick overall, the most of any school. Born on Sept. 26, 2000, Amaya is also the first player in 2000 or later to be selected on SuperDraft day.

FC Cincinnati came into the SuperDraft holding seven selections in the first two rounds, after making a landmark trade with the Philadelphia Union in the days leading up to the draft, acquiring all five of that club’s selections this year. FC Cincinnati then selected Logan Gdula of Wake Forest University with the 13th selection, before trading a pair of later selections.

FC Cincinnati made five selections in all, the most of any club. In the second round, the club had three selections, which they used to select Tommy McCabe (No. 29; Notre Dame), Jimmy Hague (No. 30; Michigan State University) and Ben Lundt (No. 37; University of Akron).

Holding the second selection in the first round, the San Jose Earthquakes selected Siad Haji of Virginia Commonwealth Univ., the first time a player from that school was selected that early in the MLS SuperDraft. Orlando City SC had the third selection overall, which they then used to select Santiago Patiño, from Florida International Univeristy.

Amaya and Haji were among the seven members of the Generation adidas class of 2019, all selected in the first round. Six were selected in the first 10 picks, including Griffin Dorsey (No. 6 by Toronto FC out of Indiana), Dayne St. Clair (No. 7 by Minnesota United FC out of Maryland), Tajon Buchanan (No. 9 by New England Revolution out of Syracuse) and John Nelson (No. 10 by FC Dallas out of North Carolina). The final member of the Generation adidas class, JJ Williams of the University of Kentucky, was selected by Columbus Crew SC at No. 18.

Three schools had two players selected in the first round: NCAA College Cup champions University of Maryland, UCLA and Michigan State Univ. It was the eighth time in MLS draft history UCLA saw multiple players selected in the first round, and the sixth time for the University of Maryland.

Players from 35 colleges and universities were represented in the 48 selections overall, led by Maryland with four. There were also players selected from 12 countries: USA, Canada, Benin, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Brazil, Colombia, Ghana, Germany, Jamaica, Mexico, Scotland and Sweden.

Rounds 3 and 4 of the 2019 SuperDraft presented by adidas will be held via conference call Monday, beginning at 1 p.m. ET.
