Stroud Drafted By New York Red Bulls In MLS SuperDraft

Colgate Midfielder Selected as No. 83 Overall Pick

Colgate men’s soccer senior Jared Stroud was selected as the No. 83 overall pick of the MLS SuperDraft by the New York Red Bulls Sunday afternoon.

Stroud marks the second Raider drafted by the Red Bulls in the last two years, as 2017 graduate Ethan Kutler was taken as the 17th overall pick in last year’s draft.

A three time All-Patriot League pick and two-time All-Region honoree, Stroud etched his name into the Colgate record books during his impressive four-year career. The Chester, N.J. native took control of both the single-season (13) and career (30) assists records during his senior season to help lead Colgate to its first-ever Sweet 16 appearance. He earned Patriot League Tournament MVP honors as a senior after guiding the Raiders to their second-straight league title in 2017.

Stroud finished his stellar career in the Maroon and White with 50 points behind 10 goals and a school-record 30 assists. The four-year starter earned first team All-Patriot League honors as a junior and senior after collecting second team plaudits as a sophomore. He earned All-Region honors in each of his last two seasons. Stroud guided the Raiders to two Patriot League Tournament championships, one regular-season championship and the program’s first-ever NCAA Tournament wins during his time at Colgate.

Stroud is the third-ever Raider to be taken in the MLS SuperDraft. Ethan Kutler ’17 was selected as the No. 17 overall pick by the New Yorks Red Bulls in the 2017 draft. Chris Ross was selected in the fourth round of the 2010 SuperDraft by Chivas USA. Two other Raiders were taken in the MLS Supplemental Draft in recent years. Steven Miller was picked in the third round of the 2012 Supplemental Draft by Montreal Impact, while Mike Reidy was taken in the fourth round of the 2013 Supplemental Draft by 2013.

The New York Red Bulls are based in Harrison, N.J. The team competes as a member of the MLS Eastern Conference.
