University of Vermont men's soccer midfielder Alex Nagy was taken in the second round of the MLS draft by D.C. United on Tuesday night.
Nagy, a senior from Bow, New Hampshire, was the 41st player selected overall in the MLS SuperDraft. Nagy is the first UVM player picked in the draft since 2017 when Geo Alves also went to D.C. United.
Prior to Alves, Brian Wright was picked in the first round by the New England Revolution in 2017 — the first Catamount to go in the MLS entry draft in program history.
Nagy tallied five goals and 10 assists this fall, helping the Catamounts to the America East tournament crown and the program's first NCAA tourney appearance since 2016.
A third-team All-America selection during the spring 2021 season, Nagy landed on back-to-back first teams for the All-Northeast and America East squads.
In his four-year career in Burlington, Nagy played in 58 games, made 35 starts and totaled 32 points (8 goals, 16 assists).
