After a much-needed weekend, the MLS was ready to roll in the third and fourth rounds of the 2019 MLS SuperDraft in Chicago Monday.

It didn’t take long before the San Jose Earthquakes were on the board in day two of the SuperDraft. So, that being said, San Jose selected defender Nathan Aune out of Seattle University. Aune appeared in 17 matches and started in 16 matches on defense. Aune scored two goals and was a key part of the Redhawks’ defense that allowed just 24 goals in 20 meetings. Moreover, Aune was named to the All-WAC First Team and the United Soccer Coaches All-West Region Second Team.

Contrary to popular belief, San Jose passed on the 74th overall pick in the fourth round of the SuperDraft, so their second and final day in Chicago ended with only one brand-new pick. The Quakes needed all the help they could get, and hopefully, these prospects-turned-pros will carry out their respective duties.

Best of luck to the Quakes, whose season kicks off on March 2 at 7:00 pm PT.
