Sounders FC acquires rights to UCLA midfielder Andy Rose from Real Salt Lake

rose mug.jpgI’ve just heard that Sounders FC has acquired the rights to UCLA senior midfielder Andy Rose, who was taken by Real Salt Lake with the No. 6 overall pick in Tuesday’s MLS Supplemental Draft.

In exchange, Seattle traded the rights to Leone Cruz (a 2011 MLS SuperDraft pick that didn’t make the team) to RSL, which confirmed the news on Twitter shortly after this was posted.

Cruz, a defender out of SMU, trained with RSL reserves several times last season.

I’ve included Rose’s bio from the MLS combine after the jump:
