2011 MLS Draft, Live Coverage: New York Red Bulls Select Corey Hertzog With No. 13 Pick

The New York Red Bulls may have found the man to replace Juan Pablo Angel, at least in the long term. With the No. 13 pick, the Red Bulls selected Corey Hertzog, a forward out of Penn State who some mock drafts had going in the top five.

Hertzog scored 20 goals and had six assists in 22 matches during his senior year. He led the NCAA in goals and points (46), while earning second-team All America honors.

Hertzog is unlikely to start right away, but could form a nice longterm partnership with the likes of Juan Agudelo. The Philadelphia Union had attempted to sign Hertzog as a Homegrown Player, but were rebuffed by the league in their efforts.
