D.C. United draft pick Jacobson signs with Lorient

When D.C. United drafted Cal midfielder Andrew Jacobson, it thought it landed one of the best central midfield prospects in the MLS Draft, a player who was seen as a long-term prospect and potential starter.

So much for those plans.

French club Lorient has formally announced the signing of Jacobson. Ouch.

Jacobson’s departure leaves D.C. with Clyde Simms and not much else at the defensive midfield role, though Ben Olsen could still be used there if needed. D.C. lost veteran Brian Carroll in the expansion draft.

The business of drafting players is getting tougher and tougher.

D.C. fans aren’t likely to shed too many tears. Not after introducing an army of new players this week, led by designated player and star playmaker Marcello Gallardo.
