Revolution Select Forward Femi Hollinger-Janzen in 3rd Round of 2016 MLS SuperDraft

The former Indiana standout will compete for a roster spot beside a deep pool of Revolution forwards.

With its third and final pick in the 2016 MLS SuperDraft, the Revolution selected former Indiana forward Femi Hollinger-Janzen.

In four seasons with the Hoosiers, Hollinger-Janzen scored 22 goals and added eight assists while featuring as both a forward and midfielder. Though his senior season proved to be his best (eight goals, five assists), he served as a critical component of Indiana's 2012 NCAA national title run, netting a pair of goals during the tournament—including the game-winner in the semi-final against Creighton. He ultimately earned a spot on the College Cup All-Tournament Team.

With the Revolution, Hollinger-Janzen will compete against a deep pool of forwards, including Charlie Davies, Juan Agudelo, Sean Okoli and 2016 second-round pick Michael Gamble. In all likelihood, the former Hoosier will earn starts with the Rochester Rhinos in USL, vying for the chance to join the Revolution. If he does make Jay Heaps' roster, Hollinger-Janzen will add a left-footed option to the attack, with the versatility to play up top or as a wide midfielder.

Here are the details on the Revolution's third-round selection:
