Reign FC picks three in NWSL college draft

One draft day down. Another to go.

Reign FC and the NWSL will take the stage as a four-round college draft starts at 7 a.m. Friday. Seattle holds three picks: No. 7 overall in the first round, No. 17 overall in the second round and No. 30 overall in the fourth round.

Here is a list of 180 or so eligible players, including two from the University of Washington (Molly Boyd, Lindsay Elston) and two from Washington State (Micaela Castain, Rachael Doyle).

I’ll update the Reign’s picks below:

Round 1, No. 7 overall — D Amanda Frisbie, University of Portland
Round 2, No. 17 overall — D Megan Brigman, University of North Carolina
Round 4, No. 30 overall — M Ellen Parker, University of Portland

You can follow the whole draft on the league website (NWSLsoccer.com) or on Twitter (@NWSL), an account that will include analysis from University of Washington women’s coach and Reign FC broadcaster Lesle Gallimore. There will be a live chat on the NWSL website, as well, if you want to follow along pick by pick.

Here are some press release quotes:

“I’m so excited to be a part of this organization. Seattle is exactly where I wanted to be.” — Frisbie

“We’ve had our eye on Amanda since we saw her play against the Thorns in pre-season. We are thrilled with the pick.” — Laura Harvey, general manager and head coach
