Marcus Tracy created a bit of a media storm when he signed with Major League Soccer earlier this week. And why not? Tracy won the 2008 Hermann Trophy (college soccer's equivalent of the Heisman Trophy). The American forward spurned MLS in 2009 and signed a contract with Danish club AaB. If Tracy would have signed with MLS, he likely would have been the first pick in the 2009 MLS SuperDraft.

The San Jose Earthquakes won the MLS lottery for the rights to forward Marcus Tracy.

San Jose had a 4.6 percent chance to land the former Wake Forest standout, but beat the odds to add the promising prospect to an already stacked stable of forwards.

Tracy, who signed with Danish side Aalbor BK before knee injuries cut short his stint in Europe, is still recovering from micro-fracture knee surgery and seems to be more of a long-term project than an immediate contributor.
