RSL traded up for the 29th pick in Thursday's MLS SuperDraft, choosing University of New Mexico alum Devon Sandoval. Sandoval spent a week training with RSL over the summer and obviously impressed the coaching staff enough to warrant a draft pick.
Sandoval was a Second-Team All-American during his senior season with New Mexico, and accumulated 28 goals and 17 assists over the course of his collegiate career.
