Vancouver Whitecaps pick Ryan Raposo with No. 4 pick at 2020 MLS SuperDraft

Raposo, 20, recorded 15 goals and seven assists for Syracuse University last season.

Vancouver Whitecaps FC selected midfielder Ryan Raposo with the fourth overall pick in the 2020 MLS SuperDraft Thursday afternoon.

Raposo, 20, played for Syracuse University for two years and is a Hamilton, Ontario native, meaning he will count as a domestic player on the Whitecaps roster. Because Raposo is also a Generation Adidas player, he can automatically be added to the Vancouver first team.

Raposo is capable of playing on the wing and in a central attacking midfield role. He recorded 15 goals and seven assists last season with Syracuse, which was up from the four goals and seven assists he put away as a college freshman.

He was named to the 2019 All-ACC First Team and previously represented the Canada U-15 men’s national team. Raposo has had training stints with German clubs TSG 1899 Hoffenheim, Mainz 05 and SV Sandhausen.
