Of course much of the attention Thursday was on Real Salt Lake's draft selections. But there was more.
Sandy’s Jacob Hustedt was taken by the San Jose Earthquakes in the second round of the 2012 MLS SuperDraft on Thursday.
The Quakes used the 25th pick of the draft on the Jordan High School graduate, who was named All-Pac 12 Conference last fall after scoring six goals in his only season with the Washington Huskies. Hustedt was the Class 5A Most Valuable Player as a senior at Jordan in 2007 — the Beetdiggers won back-to-back state titles in 2005 and 2006 — and played his first three collegiate seasons at Cal Poly, before transferring to Washington.
