Jamaican Oniel Fisher played as a midfielder at Tyler Junior College and New Mexico. He earned a full cap with his National Team in 2010 with a single minute against Trinidad & Tobago. Seattle Sounders FC took him with the 40th pick overall.

Fisher started 16 games with the Lobos in 2014, appearing in one other match, for 1208. That was the eighth most minutes for an outfielder with New Mexico. He scored 3 goals and assisted on another. All three goals were game winners. In 2013 he assisted twice and scored once while starting 18 games with 4 other appearances. He was the 5th most used Lobo playing 1752 minutes.

Oniel was one of two New Mexico players at the MLS Combine. The 5'8" player probably projects as a right back with Sounders FC and has college experience as a central midfielder and outside back.

Seattle holds picks 48, 75 and 80 on Tuesday's extension of the draft. Rounds three and four will be held via conference call then.
