Maybe would have been drafted in 1st round had he not committed to Europe by the time the draft rolled around, although as you say, likely more attractive to a Canadian team. I can't remember where, but I'm quite sure it was an American reporter who said if Friend was American and hadn't committed to Europe, he certainly would've been the #1 overall pick in the MLS draft the year he was eligible.
