MLS: MLS SuperDraft Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Houston Dynamo selected Joe Holland, Jake McGuire and Danilo Radjen in the 2017 MLS SuperDraft.

The team kicked the draft off by trading the fourth overall pick in the SuperDraft to Portland Timbers FC for the 10th overall pick, $100,000 in General Allocation Money and a 2017 International roster slot. Houston then traded $125,000 of General Allocation Money and $50,000 of Targeted Allocation Money to the LA Galaxy for defender A.J. DeLaGarza.

With the 10th pick of the draft the Dynamo selected Joe Holland, a midfielder out of Hofstra University. The England native finished his collegiate career with 19 goals and 28 assists in 79 games.

In the second round of the draft the Dynamo picked up Jake McGuire. The goal kepper played in 67 games for Tulsa and tallied 17 shutouts during his collegiate career. McGuire spent time in the U.S. Youth National Team U17 Residency Program with Dynamo Head Coach Wilmer Cabrera in 2011 and also as a member of the Chivas USA Academy.

With the number 36 pick the team selected Radjen who was named Academic All-Mid American Conference in 2015 as a junior at the University of Akron. The defender appeared in 30 games for the Zips, starting 29 matches. Radjen began his collegiate career at Cleveland State University where he appeared in 36 games, starting 34.
