White, 23, a standout with the University of Connecticut where he won U.S. college soccer's top individual award in 2007, was chosen fourth overall at the draft this afternoon in St. Louis. He missed much of the 2008 season after tearing up his knee.
Earlier, Toronto chose Sam Cronin, a star midfielder with Wake Forest University, with the second pick. And with the13th pick in the draft, Toronto chose California goalkeeper Stefan Frei.
Toronto has two more picks in the third round.
