U.S. Under-23 defender and U.S. Soccer Development Academy alum Andrew Wenger out of Duke was the top selection by the Montreal Impact during Thursday’s MLS SuperDraft held at the NSCAA Convention in Kansas City. Three of the first five selections in the draft had Development Academy ties.

The 2011 Hermann Trophy winner and ACC Offensive Player of the Year had 17 goals and eight assists last year, and he is the first Hermann Trophy recipient since Alecko Eskandarian (2002) to be taken first overall. The versatile Wenger was the ACC Defensive Player of the Year in 2010.

Wenger told the ESPN crew that he would like to play in the midfield for the Impact.
