MLS Draft 2016: New York selects Zach Carroll with the 38 pick

In the second round, New York selects Zach Carroll out of Michigan State with the 38th pick

After adding defensive depth in the first round of the Super Draft, the New York Red Bulls went on to add onto that in the second round, drafting Zach Carroll at 38th overall.

A 6' 3" centerback, Carroll played his college ball at Michigan State University after transferring from Virginia, featuring 38 times over his Junior and Senior year, scoring 7 times and assisting 4 times. During his first two years at Virgina, Carroll played 24 times for the Cavaliers, scoring 4 times, assisting on 3.

At Michigan State, Carroll earned First Team All-Big 10 honors as a senior, while also earning NSCAA Second Team All-Midwest in 2015 and Third Team All-Midwest in 2014. Carroll is a US youth international, and is seen as a strong, steady, stay at home centerback, and should add youth and depth a Red Bull's center defensive group whose future appears to be uncertain at the moment.
