STANFORD, Calif. -
Stanford men's soccer's Adam Jahn was selected with the 15th pick of the 2013 Major League Soccer Supplemental Draft by the San Jose Earthquakes Tuesday.
Jahn, an El Macero native, closed out his Stanford tenure with a career year in 2012, posting career bests of 13 goals, 30 points and four match-winners as the Cardinal went 9-8-1 overall and 5-4-1 (16 points) in conference play to nab a third-place finish on the Pac-12 table. Over his Cardinal career Jahn accumulated 60 points on 24 goals and 12 assists.
His sterling 2012 campaign earned him selection to the NSCAA All-Far West Region Second Team as well as his first nod to the All-Pac-12 Team. For his career, Jahn was a four-time all-conference pick, earning second-team recognition from 2009-11.
Jahn was twice named Pac-12 Player of the Week in 2012 (Oct. 30, Nov. 12), earning the second of those honors following his first-career hat trick in Stanford's 6-1 rout of California on Nov. 9. His hat trick was the first for a Cardinal player since 2001.
Jahn, who started all 18 matches for the Cardinal, had provided the match-winner in Stanford's away wins over ranked teams such as No. 11 UC Irvine on Sept. 7 and No. 25 UC Santa Barbara on Oct. 26, in addition to an 86th-minute winner in a 3-2 home win over Oregon State on Oct. 18.
He joins a San Jose Earthquakes club that captured the MLS Supporter's Shield as MLS' top regular-season team. The Earthquakes accumulated a league-high 66 points (19-6-9), and the capture of the Supporter's Shield earned the club a berth into the 2013-14 CONCACAF Champion's League.
San Jose opened its 2013 preseason camp Monday, and will make trips to Tucson, Ariz., Oxnard, Calif. and Portland for preseason matches before opening the 2013 regular season March 3 against Real Salt Lake at Buck Shaw Stadium in Santa Clara.
