With their 3rd pick in the 2018 MLS SuperDraft, Atlanta United FC selected forward, Gordon Wild. A product of University of Maryland, Wild ran wild literally. After transferring from USC Upstate, where he scored 16 goals in 15 games, to Maryland in 2016, Wild made an immediate impact for the Terps after starting 21 games and scoring 17 goals. He brings a kind of fire and energy that any club would want on the field. Wild racked up some pretty good accolades in his 3 years.
