With the 36th pick in the 2012 Major League Soccer Draft, Real Salt Lake Selects: Sebastian Velasquez

Well it seem each year that RSL goes off the map with a pick and at #36 the selection of Sebastian Velasquez is a reach. I know nothing about this kid, he didn't go to the combine but google lead me to a couple of things:

Here is his college page

He was a Jr. college All-American:

Sebastian Velasquez named NJCAA All-American

Sebastian Velasquez (Greenville, SC -Eastside HS) a sophmore forward has been named a NJCAA All-American Soccer Player for his fantastic contributions to the Pioneers District runner-up season.

Velasquez was awarded second team honors although he lead the country in goals scored (35) and in total points with (86). He also had (16) assists on the year.

There may be another player with that name, it seems who was part of the LA Galaxy Academy system at some point. I guess we will have to wait for the press info to hit.
