LA Galaxy select Denver’s Josh Drack in 2021 MLS Draft

Arizona native is LA’s first-round selection.

The LA Galaxy presumably went for the attack with their first selection in the 2021 MLS SuperDraft, selecting forward Josh Drack out of the University of Denver on Thursday with the No. 16 overall pick.

Drack played at Denver in 2019 after transferring from Grand Canyon University, where he played for two seasons. At Grand Canyon, he was 2017 WAC Freshman of the Year, 2017 All-WAC Freshman Team, and 2017 All-WAC Honorable Mention selections. In Denver, he was named to the 2019 Summit League Second Team and 2019 Summit League All-Newcomer Team.

An Arizona native, Drack was the 2016 Arizona Gatorade Player of the Year and at one point trained with the Portland Timbers academy.

The Galaxy need depth pretty much all over the field, and at this stage Drack potentially projects as depth, if he can get an invitation to training camp and earn a professional contract. We’ll see what happens, and we’ll have more coverage for you of the draft as news drops.
