I wanted to congratulate Jarad van Schaik from the University of Portland on being drafted today in the third round with the 52nd overall pick. Jarad was chosen by Real Salt Lake, where he will reunite with his old teammate Collen Warner. Jarad and Collen played together at Portland and they also were teammates on the Portland Timbers U-23 (PDL Team). I had the pleasure of meeting Jarad this summer, and I always felt he would be able to make the jump to MLS. He is a solid center midfielder with plenty of confidence on the ball. Very happy for him and wish him all the best in his future career.
