Union make moves, grab Yaro, Rosenberry, Herbers at SuperDraft

BALTIMORE >> MLS Commissioner Don Garber wasn’t even done with his opening address before the Philadelphia Union made a splash.

The Union acquired the No. 2 overall pick from Colorado for general allocation money and a player to be named, then brought in a haul of young players with picks in the top six, starting with two Georgetown players.

At No. 2, they selected the player most expected to go No. 1, Georgetown defender Joshua Yaro. The Ghanaian is a member of Generation Adidas. There’s some question as to where the 5-11, 163-pounder will play in the pros after three years at Georgetown as a center back, but he’s a good fit on the right as well.

With their natural selection, third overall, the Union surprised some by taking former academy product Keegan Rosenberry. The Union have a Homegrown claim denied on the right back, but took the senior anyway at No. 3.

Wake Forest’s Jack Harrison went first overall.

With the sixth pick, the Union selected German-born midfielder Fabian Herbers of Creighton. The 6-0, 170-pound scored 15 goals and dished 17 assists for the Blue Jays as a junior. He's a Generation Adidas signing. The Union had acquired the sixth pick from Houston in the Andrew Wenger-Cristian Maidana trade in December.
