SAINT LOUIS, Mo. - More than three dozen players from the 2022 USL League Two season heard their name called Wednesday night in the 2023 Major League Soccer SuperDraft.

Seven of the top ten selections spent their summer developing their skills in USL League Two, including second overall selection Shakur Mohammed. Mohammed spent the summer with Manhattan SC, hitting a high point when he provided a highlight run and assist for the winner against the then-undefeated Long Island Rough Riders.

The 2022 League Two clubs with the most players drafted were One Knoxville SC and Asheville City SC, each with five players taken in the SuperDraft. More players were drafted to Vancouver Whitecaps FC (four) than any other MLS club.

Players from 21 USL League Two clubs were drafted to 25 MLS clubs, leaving only three clubs without a draftee that played in the 2022 League Two season.
