The Houston Dynamo did not make any trades in today's MLS SuperDraft. Brian Ching is still with Montreal and Andre Hainault is still here, so all that unnecessary hullabaloo caused by a certain Chronicle writer was for naught. Instead the Dynamo added two new players, selecting forward Colin Rolfe and midfielder Warren Creavalle.
Rolfe is a 6-foot, 175 pound striker from the University of Louisville. In four season with the Cardinals, he scored 33 goals (a school record) and had 19 assists. Rolfe was the first Louisville player to be nominated for the Hermann Trophy.
Creavalle is a 6-foot, 155 pound holding midfielder from the University of Central Florida. In his senior season with the Golden Knights, he was named to the All-Conference USA First Team, playing in 17 games, with one goal and three assists. He also made the MAC's Hermann watch list. Creavalle would provide coverage in the midfield behind Luiz Camargo and Adam Moffat.
Both these players look to have potential but will have a lot to prove during training camp to earn their spots on the roster. I'm not trying to be a downer, just being honest. I'm looking forward to seeing what they bring to the table and if Rolfe can potentially play his way in to the rotation up front.
