MLS Draft 2011: CJ Sapong Chats With The Daily Wiz

One of the bigger surprises of the MLS SuperDraft was Sporting Kansas City taking James Madison University product CJ Sapong with the 10th overall pick. Sapong was largely projected as a late-first rounder or a second rounder. He put up solid numbers in college, socring 37 goals and registering 21 assists in four years, but wasn't exactly playing against big-name opponents. His stock apparently rose considerably at the MLS Combine.

The Daily Wiz's Andy Edward had a chance to chat with SKC's newest addition.

The Daily Wiz: CJ, first of all, thanks for the time and congratulations on being a first round pick in the MLS draft. Could you go ahead and talk about some of the things that you already know about Sporting KC?

Well, the club I I know first of all, the staff is really great. The little time that I've been out here since getting picked, I'm feeling great vibes and I feel so comfortable right now. At the combine, they were the very first team I met with and from the get-go, the vibes were very strong. It was just a great interview. It wasn't like the normal interview per se. I was able to be myself. The questions they asked me were just questions that I felt were really comfortable. One of the questions they asked me was "what was the greatest goal I've scored in my career," and something like that, me being a forward, I just rolled over. I kind of went off on a little tangent, but I think it kind of spoke to the face of how comfortable I was with them from the get-go. It was the start of a great, great relationship, and I'm looking forward to working hard and being an impact player.
