Sporting KC selects Kamar Marriott with 21st pick

Marriott is a defender from Florida Gulf Coast

MLS: SuperDraft Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports

Sporting Kansas City selected Kamar Marriott from Florida Gulf Coast with the 21st pick in the first round of the 2019 MLS SuperDraft. Marriott has played both center back and defensive midfield in college. Manager Peter Vermes sees him as a guy that can learn to play Sporting KC’s style, controlling the ball and playing out of the back.

Marriott was not at the MLS Combine but was a player they have had their eye on since one of the coaches brought him to their attention.
