MLS side New England Revolution have selected former RSA scholar Joshua Bolma in the Wednesday’s 2023 MLS SuperDraft presented by Adidas.
New England Revolution acquired the No. 4 overall selection from the San Jose Earthquakes and selected University of Maryland midfielder Bolma in Round One.
The 20-year-old was named Big Ten Freshman of the Year in 2021 and earned selections to the All-Big Ten First Team and Big Ten All-Freshman team after netting four goals and providing four assists in 18 appearances during his first collegiate season.
The highly-rated midfielder became the fourth Maryland player in program history to earn a second All-Big Ten First Team selection behind two goals and eight assists over 20 appearances.
Bolma, who was signed to the Generation Adidas Class of 2023, helped lead the Terrapins to a 2022 Big Ten regular season title and a second straight NCAA Tournament bid.
The midfielder was born and bred in Accra, Ghana and attended South Kent High School in South Kent, Connecticut after graduation from the Academy.
