2011 MLS Draft, Live Coverage: Houston Dynamo Select Will Bruin With No. 11 Pick

The Houston Dynamo acquired the No. 11 overall pick for allocation money from the Portland Timbers, who themselves had acquired the pick for allocation money from the Seattle Sounders, and selected Will Bruin. The Indiana forward who was signed to a Generation Adidas contract and is one the U-20 United States National Team was once believed to be in the mix for a top 3 selection.

The 6-foot-2, 194-pounder was among the larger players in the draft pool and put up ridiculous scoring numbers during his junior year. In just 20 matches, Bruin scored 18 goals and had five assists while doing battle in the always tough Big 10. In his three-year career, Bruin scored 33 goals and registered nine assists.

The Dynamo will almost certainly give Bruin a chance to start and, if nothing else, will be allowed to study under Brian Ching, a player that has a similar skillset. The Dynamo had already selected Kofi Sarkodie, a defender with the No. 7 pick.
