The Red Bulls did tab Volk with their second-round pick, No. 31 overall. The 22-year-old _ who transferred from Rutgers to UVA _ started 62 of 64 games for the Cavaliers in three seasons, a captain in the final two.
With their third-rounder, No. 50 overall, they selected Barreiro. The two-time All-Ivy selection led Penn in both goals and assists this past year with seven, also earning first-team All-Ivy honors as a junior with a league-high seven assists.
Finally, they went the JUCO route on Polak with the 69th overall selection, who had 43 goals and 30 assists during his tenure. Polak had 18 scores and 17 assists while leading Hastings to an unbeaten record in the Great Plains Athletic Conference this year, an NAIA First Team All-American selection. He helped them win the NAIA National title last season.
