Inter Miami Stays On the Offensive in the Second and Third Rounds

The Herons had one selection in the second round and went with University of Virginia forward Leo Alfonso with the 32nd pick.

Alfonso returns to Inter Miami after featuring for the club’s academy side from 2019 to 2020.

In his senior season with the Cavaliers, Alfonso racked up five goals — including three in the postseason. He collected 22 goals and eight assists in 59 appearances for Virginia.

Finally, in the third round, Inter Miami picked University of North Carolina at Wilmington midfielder Pep Casas.

Casas scored two goals and recorded two assists in his 33 appearances for Wilmington.

UNC-Wilmington finished the 2023 season with a record of 6-6-4.

In all, the Herons made out well in the draft, collecting four picks and getting General Allocation Money in the process.

I would have thought Inter Miami would make some moves to bolster its defense a bit more, rather than go completely offensive, but they picked up a solid crop of players that could prove beneficial for a side clearly focusing on its offensive presence in 2024.
