LOS ANGELES - UCLA soccer players Seth George and Tom Poltl joined the long list of former Bruins in Major League Soccer after being drafted in the MLS collegiate draft today.

George, a forward from Mission Viejo, CA (Santa Margarita HS), was the first Bruin selected, chosen as the first pick in the second round (13th overall) by the Los Angeles Galaxy. George a two-time All-American, ranks in UCLA's Top 10 in all scoring categories, having scored 49 goals, 27 assists, 20 game-winning goals and 125 points in his four years as a Bruin. George will join older brother Sam (Tampa Bay Mutiny) in MLS and will join former Bruins Paul Caligiuri, Kevin Hartman, Cobi Jones, Matt Reis and Greg Vanney with the Galaxy. George is currently playing in the German Bundesliga for 1860 Munich's amateur team under a short-term contract.

The Colorado Rapids selected midfielder Poltl (San Marcos/San Marcos HS) with the eighth pick in the second round (20th overall). Poltl is a two-time All-Far West selection who totaled 13 goals and 16 assists in his career. He joins former Bruin teammate Tahj Jakins in Colorado.

D.C. United chose midfielder Jason Moore of Virginia with the first overall pick.

In the MLS supplemental draft, former UCLA All-Far West defender Adam Frye (1992-95) was selected by the San Jose Clash as the third overall pick. Frye last played for the Tampa Bay Mutiny a year ago.
