Release: 01/13/2017
LOS ANGELES - Colton Storm and Walker Hume of the North Carolina men’s soccer team were selected in the 2017 MLS SuperDraft on Friday from the Los Angeles Convention Center. Storm was taken 14th overall by Sporting KC, while Hume was drafted in the second round by FC Dallas.

Storm recorded two goals and eight assists in 69 games during his four-year collegiate career. As a senior in 2016, he was a second team All-Atlantic Coast Conference honoree and earned NSCAA third team All-South Region accolades. He was also named to the NCAA College Cup Best XI, helping North Carolina reach the final four of the national tournament.

A native of Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, Storm started his final 41 matches in North Carolina colors, logging 20 appearances in 2015 and 21 in 2016. He captained the Tar Heels as a senior, leading a defense that notched 12 shutouts in 21 games.

Storm’s selection at 14th overall matching the exact slot that former UNC star Mikey Lopez was taken by the Kansas City based club back in 2013.

Hume compiled eight goals and six assists in 41 games in a two-year stint with North Carolina. He spent his first two seasons at Rollins College where he amassed 14 goals and eight assists in earning All-America honors at the Division II level.

The Texan is the fifth Carolina player selected by FCD, and the first since Matt Hedges was taken 11th overall in 2012.

The two defenders were catalysts on a club this past fall that reached the College Cup in Houston, was the top seed in the ACC Championship after winning the ACC’s Coastal Division and recorded a No. 4 final ranking according to the NSCAA with a 14-3-4 record.
