Vancouver Whitecaps FC is on the clock.

Those are the words current ‘Caps first teamers Jake Nerwinski, Ryan Raposo, David Egbo and Javain Brown heard during their respective MLS SuperDrafts as they anxiously waited to begin their dreams of becoming professional footballers.

Those dreams came true, as all four went on to sign professional contracts with the ‘Caps.

Could another selection soon join them on the roster? The 2022 MLS SuperDraft is set to take place on Tuesday, January 11 at 11:30 a.m. PT.
