Dotson was taken by Minnesota United FC with the 31st overall pick (seventh pick of the second round). He was followed five picks later by Tchilao, who went 36th overall (12th pick of the second round) to the Los Angeles Galaxy.
They join Jordan Jones (LAFC – 47th overall – 2018), Timmy Mueller (Portland Timbers – 63rd – 2018), Khiry Shelton (NYCFC – 2nd overall – 2015), Will Seymore (FC Dallas – 56th overall – 2015), Emery Welshman (Toronto FC – 16th overall – 2013), Danny Mwanga (Philadelphia Union – 1st overall – 2010), Robbie Findley (LA Galaxy – 16th overall – 2007), Ryan Johnson (Real Salt Lake – 26th overall – 2006) and Alan Gordon (LA Galaxy – 53rd overall – 2004) as Beavers selected in the draft.
Dotson, who hails from Federal Way, Wash., played every minute for the Beavers this season, serving as a steadying force in the OSU midfield. The senior was a Pac-12 Second Team honoree, and earned conference Player of the Week recognition once this season. Dotson also found the net against UCLA, scoring the third goal in OSU's 4-3 win.
