Omphroy was selected in the second round of the 2011 draft by TFC.

"I want quality defenders and that's why I took Demitrius in the SuperDraft," Toronto FC coach Aron Winter said. "He is one of the players that I saw at the MLS Combine, and he was on my ranking list and he performed well in preseason."
