The Portland Timbers selected Justin Rasmussen with the 27th pick in the 2022 MLS SuperDraft.
The 23-year-old Rasmussen spent five years at Grand Canyon University before entering the SuperDraft. He played midfield for much of his college career before moving to the left wing back role in a back three, according to a profile by SBI’s Larry Henry Jr.
Rasmussen made 20 appearances in 2021, logging nine goals and six assists under a new head coach. He will likely play a backup role with the Timbers in 2022.
Portland also selected defenders Julian Bravo (Santa Clara) with the 55th overall pick and Sivert Haugli (Virginia Tech) 83rd overall.
