With their second pick of the 2018 MLS SuperDraft, Atlanta United FC continue to stack their roster with the addition of midfielder, Oliver Shannon, a graduate of Clemson University.          .

Now adding a midfielder to their roster, Atlanta United FC grabs an explosive player who has a lot of potential moving the ball. The senior from Liverpool, UK as a freshman scored 3 goals. In his sophomore season, Shannon was named to the All-ACC Third team and recorded 5 goals. With each season, Shannon continued to get better and distribute the ball. In doing so, his numbers weren’t eye-popping but good enough to get drafted by Atlanta United FC.

With his ability to see the field, Shannon should make noise this upcoming season.
