2013 MLS Supplemental Draft: San Jose Earthquakes select three west coast collegians

The San Jose Earthquakes completed their 2013 MLS drafting with three selections in Supplemental Draft. Forward Adam Jahn and defenders Colin Mitchell and Peter McGlynn were selected by the Quakes and will now hope to sign on with their new team.

Through the 2013 MLS Supplemental Draft, the San Jose Earthquakes added three new names to the list of prospective players trying to make the club. Forward Adam Jahn and defenders Colin Mitchell and Peter McGlynn were selected by the Quakes in the four-round draft.

Forward Adam Jahn of Stanford University was the #15 overall pick in the draft and first selection of the Quakes. The 6’3" target man set a personal best for goals scored in his senior year, netting 13, while helping lead Stanford to a third place finish in the Pac-12. Jahn was named to the All-Pac-12 First Team following his senior year and in December was named to the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) Far West Region Second Team. Jahn completed his Stanford career with 24 goals and 12 assists.

Third round selection Colin Mitchell of Oregon State University was the #53 pick in the draft. The 6’0" Beavers midfielder/defender is the second OSU player selected this year, as teammate Emery Welshman went at #16 in the SuperDraft to Toronto FC. The San Francisco native could likely find a place on the Quakes as a left sided fullback.

Defender Peter McGlynn of U.C. Santa Barbara was the #72 overall pick in the Supplemental Draft and last selection of the Earthquakes. The 5’11" Ireland native made headlines in 2012 for all the wrong reasons as he was kicked off the team following a physical alteration with a referee during a match against U.C. Davis. McGlynn finished his Gauchos career with 2 goals and 6 assists, ending the 2012 season with 0 goals and 3 assists.

All three selections of the Earthquakes played their collegiate soccer on the west coast. In last year’s supplemental draft, the Quakes selected forward Cesar Diaz Pizarro with the #25 overall pick. Pizarro was the only selection last year, and the first since Adam Smarte in 2008, to be signed by the club. With preseason training camp just under way, the current Supplemental Draft picks will make their way to San Jose in the coming days in hopes of securing an MLS contract.
