How Acquired: Selected by the Galaxy in the first round (19th overall) of the 2012 MLS SuperDraft.
The Galaxy’s first round pick in the SuperDraft, Meyer is another in the long line of talented rookie defenders that have come through the Galaxy in recent years. Calm and composed in the center of defense, while also with the ball at his feet, Meyer will be asked to help fill the void alongside A.J. DeLaGarza that was created by the injury to Omar Gonzalez while also making a name for himself in his first year with the club.
2011: An All-Big Ten selection as a senior, Meyer started all 22 of Indiana’s games while recording a career-high seven assists and helping his team keep nine clean sheets on the season. Four of his seven assists came in two games as he tallied two assists in the 6-0 win over Dayton and the 2-0 win over Rutgers before adding single assists in the 3-2 home loss to Louisville, the 4-1 win at Michigan and against Northwestern in the Big Ten Semifinal. He entered the season never having more than two assists in a game but finished his senior season second in the conference. 2010: Appeared in and started 19 of IU’s 20 games, and was named to the All-Big Ten second team. He had two assists on the year, tallying one in the 2-1 loss at Brown and his second in the 2-1 win over Michigan when he set up Caleb Konstanski for the eventual game-winning goal. 2009: Firmly established himself in the starting lineup, starting all 22 games that he played in as Indiana kept 10 clean sheets, including four in wins over top 25 teams. He recorded the first assist of his collegiate career in the 1-0 win at Wisconsin on 9/25. In the NCAA Tournament, he led a defense that kept two clean sheets and allowed just one goal in three games. 2008: Appeared in 18 games while making 16 starts as a freshman, helping the Hoosiers record seven shutouts, including two in the NCAA Tournament. Was named to the Big Ten All- Freshman Team and the College Soccer News All-Freshman second team.
