FC Dallas Takes Ryan Hollingshead at Number 20

At the beginning of the second round, with the 20th overall pick in the 2013 MLS SuperDraft, FC Dallas has selected UCLA midfielder Ryan Hollingshead.

Hollingshead made some headlines over the last couple weeks for skipping the MLS Combine for pursuing a religious mission. This is a very interesting choice considering there may be a chance that he may not pursue a professional career in soccer.

Should he actually play, which will likely come later this spring/summer, Hollingshead will be a solid addition. Dallas will need to sort out his future, and possibly the club is just hedging their bet that he will eventually play.

Honestly, before he claimed to be going on a missionary project before the Combine, I would have said this would be a heck of a pick up for Dallas. As we all know the club needs depth and help on the wings and Hollingshead would be just that guy to do it. But if he isn't going to play at all this year, then this could just be a wasted pick at the end of the day.
