Babayele Sodade Sounders Second Round Draft Pick

In the second round of the MLS SuperDraft the Seattle Sounders went for an athletic goal scoring forward in UAB's Babayele Sodade. Standing 6'3 and 195 Sodade's test for the vertical at the Combine went higher than they were prepared to measure. A dual citizen of the USA and Canada he trained with the Canadian Olympic team in 2010 and is competing for a roster spot while they attempt to qualify for London 2012. The four year senior netted 29 goals and assisted on 11 others.

Another C+ rated player by Maureci, Sodade and Duran both were in his top 26. An athletic large forward with a background in Ontario, Canada he is quickly similar to O'Brian White.

For Seattle he comes into compete with a shallow forward corp and offers another mix to the tactical plans that Sigi Schmid can make. In what comes as little surprise his twitter account follow numbers are exploding.
