The New England Revolution will have another option at forward as they selected Cal State Fullerton product Marc Fenelus in the third round of Tuesday's MLS SuperDraft.

Fenelus, chosen 47th overall, will go down as the Revolution's only selection in the 2015 SuperDraft as the team traded away their other picks. The Revs' first-round pick was dealt to Sporting KC last year in exchange for Teal Bunbury. The Revs received Sean Okoli after sending their second-round pick to the Seattle Sounders. In 2013, Brad Knighton returned to New England with the Vancouver Whitecaps receiving a third-round pick. The Revolution's fourth-round pick was offered to Toronto FC in a trade for Jeremy Hall.

Fenelus, a native of the Turks and Caicos Islands, began his collegiate career at Western Texas College. After collecting 40 goals and 19 assists in two years, Fenelus transferred to Cal State Fullerton. Here he amassed nine goals and four assists.

Fenelus has also played for the Turks and Caicos national team. On June 3, 2014, Fenelus scored a goal against the British Virgin Islands in a Carribean Cup qualifier, ending a six year drought for the islands.

The 22-year-old striker will use preseason to make his claim for a roster spot. Incumbent Charlie Davies and the recently signed Okoli are the only pure forwards currently on the roster. In total, the Revs have 20 inked players, including the on-loan Jerry Bengtson.

Preseason camp for the Revs is set to open on Thursday.
