After grabbing a defender with their first selection, the New England Revolution claimed Wake Forest forward Michael Gamble with the 30th overall pick.

The 5'7, 150 lbs Gamble finished his collegiate career with 24 goals and 20 assists in 60 appearances. His best season came in 2014 when he nabbed six goals and ten helpers. Gamble has earned several accolades throughout his career, including being named to the NSCAA Second Team All-South Region in 2014 and 2015.

Gamble is a quick and lively forward, who has no problem finding the back of the net. On Sept. 23, 2014, Gamble collected four goals and an assist against Virginia Military Institute. It was called one of the ACC's Must-See Moments.

Gamble is projected to play as a winger at the next level, which makes sense given the Revs' current setup. That said, Gamble will join an already crowded midfielder that boasts the likes of Kelyn Rowe, Diego Fagundez, and Teal Bunbury.
