Sounders select Forward Andy Craven in 3rd Round

Forward Andy Craven scored 15 goals and had 5 assists for University of North Carolina in 2014.

Andy Craven, a forward from the University of North Carolina, was just selected in the 3rd Round by the Seattle Sounders. In 2014 season, his 15 goals and 5 assists helped lead the Tarheels into the Quarterfinals. Those 15 goals were tied for the best in Division I. He was named All-NSCAA First-Team, All-ACC first Team, and was a MAC Herman Trophy finalist. He also was a part of the USMNT U-17 squad for the 2009 U-17 FIFA World Cup.

The 5'11" forward turns 23 this coming Wednesday (or today or yesterday depending on when you read this article). He is originally from Georgia. If you want to give his twitter a follow or shoutout, it's @andymcraven.

Craven sat at No. 5 in's top 20 players available after the first two rounds, saying wherever he would be drafted would be considered a steal. Craven has already signed a contract with MLS, so there won't be any Tyler Miller nonsense going on here. What this means for his senior roster status regarding S2 or First-Team is unknown at the time, and might not be known until the new CBA is signed.
