Stanford lost two more players when junior safety Ed Reynolds and right tackle Cameron Fleming announced Tuesday that they will enter the NFL draft. They were the second and third Cardinal players to make the jump this week.

All-American left guard David Yankey declared for the draft Monday. The deadline is Wednesday.

Reynolds, an academic senior with one year of football eligibility remaining, was a first-team all-conference performer in 2012-13 and received All-American recognition from several media outlets.

Fleming's departure means the Cardinal will have to replace four of five offensive lineman from a team that went 11-3 this past season.

Only left tackle Andrus Peat returns.

Inside linebacker A.J. Tarpley and defensive end Henry Anderson announced last week that they will return to Stanford for 2014, but the Cardinal must replace five starters off one of the nation's best defenses.

MLS

The Earthquakes won a weighted lottery to acquire former All-American forward Billy Schuler.

The New Jersey native joins Major League Soccer after playing two years for Hammarby IF of Sweden. He scored two goals in 26 appearances in two seasons, and also played for Hammarby's developmental team, Nacka FF.

Schuler, 23, had 16 goals and five assists to lead North Carolina to a national championship in 2011.

He had 29 goals and 15 assists during his three seasons with the Tar Heels.

San Jose won the lottery over Real Salt Lake, the two MLS teams interested in the 5-foot-11-inch striker. The Quakes also won a lottery in 2012 to get forward Marcus Tracy.

The Earthquakes expect to add to the roster Thursday in the MLS draft.

They have three picks, including the ninth overall selection.
