Brown second Tar Heel to be drafted to MLS

Senior midfielder Cameron Brown became the second Tar Heel from the 2012 men’s soccer team to make the leap to the MLS on Tuesday.

Brown was selected as the seventh overall pick in the first round by FC Dallas in the 2013 MLS Supplemental Draft.

Brown scored three goals and dished out three assists in 21 games this season.

The Texas native joined the team in 2007, but missed the 2010 and 2011 seasons after sustaining a knee injury during the 2010 Premier Development League season.

Brown will join three former Tar Heels with FC Dallas — defenders Zach Loyd and Matt Hedges along with assistant coach Marco Ferruzzi who played at UNC from 1989 to 1992.

Thanks for reading.
