David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

Well, this year's Re-Entry Draft certainly was a bit of a stinker with the amount of picks that were made. As we all know, FC Dallas selected Atiba Harris, bringing the attacker back to Frisco to reunite with Oscar Pareja. While we think about that pick some more, lets get into some morning links.

While a lot of you were scratching you heads over Harris being selected yesterday, seeing that Jeremy Hall was traded for anything was more puzzling to me. And if you want a real wild one to laugh at, SKC recently signed James Marcelin. Yep.

Wake Forrest was never a dominant power house in college soccer but they did manage to turn out a good amount of MLS players over the years. I like this pickup for Portland's USL team. These teams need managers that can develop young players.

I know there are a lot of people that want to see soccer succeed in Detroit, I'm one of them. I think this would be a good first step in that process.
