CHICAGO, IL (WXIX) - FC Cincinnati selected Frankie Amaya with the No. 1 selection.

FCC, who held 10 picks coming into Friday’s draft, first opted to add some offense with the UCLA and US Under-20 attacking midfielder.

Amaya played one season at UCLA finishing with two goals and two assists in fourteen games.

There was some question as to whether FC Cincinnati would hold on to the first overall pick, as they took a time-out while the club brass talked to LAFC on draft room floor.

FC Cincinnati will play its inaugural season in Major League Soccer starting in March.
