MORE ON DELEON FROM MLS.COM:
Nick DeLeon, D.C. United's first pick (7th overall) in the 2012 MLS SuperDraft is widely considered one of the most entertaining and promising young players in Major League Soccer.
The 22-year-old midfielder's ability to make an impact on a game was immediately on display in his first appearance for the Black-and-Red, as he scored just 12 minutes into his professional debut against the reigning MLS Cup Champions LA Galaxy. From there, DeLeon became a regular in D.C. United's midfield, starting 24 of 27 games in which he has played. With an impressive five goals and four assists on the season, he is on the verge of making history as D.C. United's highest scoring rookie.
