Former Bulls four-year starter Marcus Epps made his transition to professional soccer official Monday when he signed a contract with the Philadelphia Union.
Epps was selected 25th overall by the Union in the MLS SuperDraft after the team traded the 42nd overall pick and $50,000 worth of allocation money in 2018 to move up to draft him.

Epps, 22, was the first player drafted by the Union this year and becomes the 21st USF player to take his talents to the professional level.
