Brian White
Trio taken in SuperDraft
January 19, 2018 (Official Press Release)

The New York Red Bulls made three selections in the first two rounds of the 2018 MLS SuperDraft on Friday afternoon at the Philadelphia Convention Center.

With the 16th overall pick of the 2018 MLS SuperDraft, the New York Red Bulls selected Duke product Brian White. Following White, New York selected Niko De Vera (31st overall) and Tom Barlow (39th overall), respectively, in the second round.

A four-year standout at Duke, White played in all but one match (73 of 74) and started in 63 of 74 as a Blue Devil. The Flemington, New Jersey, native was a top-five point getter at Duke and led his team in scoring his senior season with 10 goals. White accrued 57 points on 23 goals and 11 assists.

White is also a familiar face with New York as he competed for the Premier Development League side this past summer, scoring 17 goals along with three assists. The 5-foot-11 forward was named the PDL's MVP for his incredible performances over the course of the season.

De Vera, a three-year letterwinner at Akron and a Portland Timbers Academy product, had his best season during his senior campaign earning All-MAC honors as a second-team honoree. The Camas, Washington, native started all 23 matches his senior campaign and tallied four assists as a defender.

Barlow was an immediate impact at Wisconsin when he arrived as a freshman in 2014. Over four seasons, the 6-foot-2 forward started all but two games as a Badger (76 of 78). Barlow collected Big Ten All-Freshman honors in 2014 and recorded 23 goals on 151 shots, 15 assists, 61 points, 10 game-winnings goals and 6413 minutes in Cardinal and White. He led the Big Ten in scoring with 10 goals during his senior campaign.
