Portland Thorns add top college talent with No. 1 and No. 2 overall picks in college draft

Thursday was a big one for the Portland Thorns.  The club already had the number one overall pick in the NWSL College Draft, acquiring it via trade with Orlando Pride in a blockbuster deal last week that saw former top overall pick Emily Sonnett head to Orlando.

Then, the Thorns acquired the number two overall selection as well in a big trade with Chicago in the moments leading up to the start of the draft.

With the two top overall picks, Portland selected some of the best collegiate talent the NCAA has to offer, and both players hail from the Pac-12 Conference.

With the No.1 overall pick, the Thorns took Sophia Smith, a forward from Stanford University.

Then with the second overall selection, the Thorns acquired Washington State University forward Morgan Weaver.
