DURHAM, N.C.-Duke University senior midfielder Cole Grossman was picked by the Columbus Crew with the 28th overall pick in the 2011 Major League Soccer (MLS) SuperDraft today in Baltimore, Md. Grossman was the 10th player taken in the second round and the third pick by the Crew on the day.

Grossman participated in the 2011 MLS Combine and helped lead the AdiZero team to a 1-1-1 record in the three games. He tallied one goal overall and started in two of the three games.  

Grossman, an All-ACC first team selection in 2010, was placed on the ADIPURE team, which will be coached by University of Tulsa head coach Tom McIntosh. He is one of nine midfielders on the team and one of four players from the ACC on the squad.

The St. Louis native led the Blue Devils in assists with eight and ranked second on the team in overall points with 28. He registered at least one point in 10 contests and netted multiple goals three times. For his career, Grossman played in 70 games and scored 25 goals and 24 assists for 74 points.

The Columbus Crew is coming off of a 14-9-8 overall record and finished second in the Eastern Conference. The Crew fell to the Colorado Rapids on aggregate in the first round of the MLS Playoffs in 2010. One of the original clubs in Major League Soccer, Columbus was looking for help in the midfield after it lost a host of midfielders in the offseason, including MLS MVP Guillermo Schelotto in 2008.

Grossman is the first Duke player to be picked since Mike Grella and Darrius Barnes were chosen in the third round in 2009.
