Coming into the 2012 MLS Super Draft the Union did not have any real glaring needs to fill. With that in mind they were able to employ the take-the-best-player-available strategy. In the eyes of the Union brain trust that player was UCLA forward Chandler Hoffman.
Based on the videos I can tell you two things. First, the kid loves his left foot. Second, he certainly knows how to celebrate a goal.
Hoffman, like a number of other recent Union draft picks, is a Generation Adidas player, which means that his salary will not count against the Union’s cap. He’ll join fellow UCLA Bruins Amobi Okugo and Kyle Nakazawa on the Union roster.
