Former Wolverine Soccer Player Soony Saad To Play In MLS!!!

Former UM soccer player Soony Saad has signed with Major League Soccer (MLS) this season. Since he signed after MLS has their Superdraft he had to go through a weighted lottery to see what team he would be playing for. The lottery is the way MLS dispurses its players if they sign after the regular Superdraft. Its the equivalent of a supplemental draft like the NFL uses. Sporting Kansas City won the lottery and gained Soonys services. He will be joining in former teammate Justin Meram in the MLS. Justin was drafted by the Columbus Crew in the Superdraft. Soony played his high school soccer at Dearborn High School where he was named the Gatorade National Player of the Year after his senior season. Last season was his freshman year at Michigan where he lead the Wolverines with a team record 19 goals and an to their first appearance in the College Cup, the Final Four of NCAA soccer. He was also named Freshman of the Year by Soccer America.
