The week moves forward as we get closer to the SuperDraft.

Now that FCD is linked up with OKC, it is time to get to know our new affiliate in the USL just a little better.
// MLS //
This year's draft pool has a little more talent than last year's. While FCD is picking out of the top 10 again this time around, there could still be a guy that could fall to us that works out.
Matt Doyle offers up a lot of good comments here about the future of the college game for soccer. Plenty still needs to be done to improve it. Hopefully in the coming year or so we see a change for the better of the game and the players/students involved.
Is he a center back or a right back? Only a few seem to really know.
Another piece on a soon-to-be MLS rookie in Wake Forest midfielder Jack Harrison. His path from Man U's academy to the US was an interesting one to say the least. A lot of folks are thankful that NYCFC's HGP claim on him was denied too.
Such an interesting move for both sides. To me, this sounds like Columbus is working on bringing in another striker this offseason while Portland is looking for their Max Urruti replacement within the league.
Portland continues to add pieces to the pie here this offseason from within MLS (though Zarek Valentin is returning to MLS). I have to say I respect how well their offseason has been so far despite losing Urruti and Will Johnson.
No shocker to see this move done before the draft on Thursday, Alan Gordon is staying in Southern California with LA.
Yep, for now Jordon Morris is in Germany with Werder Breman. Only time will tell if that sticks or if he is just waiting for Seattle to chip in a little more cash.

I love me some Carli Lloyd.
