The New England Revolution Introduce…

I've never liked socks over the knees...never.

…Marc Fenelus.

Yes, with the 5th pick in the 3rd round (acquired in the Castillion-Nasco-Imbongo trade with Colorado)- their only pick in this year’s draft- the New England Revolution selected Cal-State Fullerton forward Marc Fenelus.  The 5’11” 160lb 22 year old was born in Haiti and raised in Providenciales, Turks & Caicos.  He began his collegiate career at Western Texas Junior College where he earned All-Region and All-American honors, totally 40 goals and 19 assists.  At Cal-State Fullerton he played in 41 matches (starting 25) and scoring 9 goals and adding 4 assists- he was the team’s leading scorer as a senior in 2014 he lead the team in goals and total points.

As much as the Revolution- or any other club- can always use another reliable scorer, I’m guessing that Fenelus has a season or two ahead of him with Rochester Rhinos before he gets his shot with the big club.  It’s not that the Revolution don’t have a good history with draft picks- I’d say they’ve done a bit better than the average MLS club- but at the moment I can’t see Fenelus unseating Charlie Davies or Teal Bunbury at forward or taking minutes away from the midfield scorers- Nguyen, Rowe, Jones.  The Revolution have also acquired Tristan Bowen and Sean Okoli in recent days.  I don’t know much about Okoli, but Bowen has never scored two goals in an MLS season.
