Earthquakes land rights to Marcus Tracy


The San Jose Earthquakes won the MLS lottery for the rights to forward Marcus Tracy.

San Jose had a 4.6 percent chance to land the former Wake Forest standout, but beat the odds to add the promising prospect to an already stacked stable of forwards.

Tracy, who signed with Danish side Aalbor BK before knee injuries cut short his stint in Europe, is still recovering from micro-fracture knee surgery and seems to be more of a long-term project than an immediate contributor.

By joining San Jose, Tracy will be re-united with former Wake Forest teammates Ike Opara and Sam Cronin. All three were members of the 2007 National Championship team.

San Jose had the second lowest odds heading into the weighted lottery, but beat out the likes of New England (33.2 percent), FC Dallas (19.7) and Philadelphia (16.8) for Tracy's services. Only Seattle had lower odds heading into the lottery (2.1 percent)
