DCU Selects.....

With the 24th overall pick, United claims Cal-Berkeley holding midfielder Andrew Jacobson. He is 22 years old, 6 feet 2 and 188 pounds. First-team all-American this past season. Three-time all-Pac-10 first team selection after redshirting in 2004. He had 11 goals and 13 assists in 83 matches (62 starts). He had been projected to go as high as No. 10 overall.

In the third round (33rd overall), United selects left-sided midfielder Ryan Cordeiro from Connecticut. He's 5-11 and 175 pounds, had 18 goals and 19 assists in 84 career matches (59 starts).

And about 3 1/2 hours after the draft commenced, United used its final pick (52nd overall) to take Creighton defender-midfielder Tony Schmitz.

Comments from DCU's decision-makers and other details in the Saturday print editions (available late tonight on the Post's Web site).
