With its only pick of the 2010 MLS SuperDraft, D.C. United selected a player it is very, very familiar with - University of North Carolina defender Jordan Graye. The 6-foot, 2-inch defender played in the D.C. United Academy system at four levels - with the U-14, U-15, U-16 and U-20 team, winning a national title with the U-14 team in 2001. A DC native, Jordan played for Reston Football Club and at DeMatha High School in Hyattsville, MD.
