It was big wins for Caribbean recruits at the first two rounds of the 2016 Major Soccer League Super Draft last week. Real Salt Lake grabbed Top 5 pick Jamaican midfielder Omar Holness, who was named to Jamaica’s 30-man preliminary roster for the 2015 Copa América.
Fellow countryman Neco Brett was selected by the Portland Timbers while Belize’s own Michael Salazar was also picked up by Montreal Impact.
First pick of the draft went to English player Jack Harrison, who was selected by Chicago Fire.
Rounds three and four of the draft will be held via conference call on January 19.
