The Houston Dynamo made their final selection of the 2015 MLS Superdraft by picking Taylor Hunter out of the University of Denver. Hunter was selected with the 7th pick in the 3rd round (49th overall) and was the last draft pick by the Dynamo.
Hunter, an "academic standout and defensive minded midfielder", according to Darrell Lovell, played in 68 matches during his time at the University of Denver starting in 62 of them where he helped the team set shutout, scoreless minutes, single season wins, and consecutive unbeaten match records (thank you Jeff Strong for tweeting out the link for his work at Denver). Hunter's senior year was one of his best years as he was named the Summit League Tournament MVP, named to the CoSIDA Academic All-District 7 First Team, and named team captain.
Hunter sits behind Ricardo Clark, Luis Garrido, Nathan Sturgis, who was officially signed today, and first round Superdraft pick Zach Steinberger in depth at the defensive midfielder position and if signed will likely see time developing with the Charleston Battery.
