College and Amateur
Before college, Nanchoff played for Walsh Jesuit High School in Ohio. He then spent four years at the University of Akron playing in three after redshirting the 2008 season. He skipped his final year of NCAA eligibility to sign a Generation Adidas contract after being named one of the top collegiate players by many sources.
Nanchoff was drafted in the first round (8th overall) in the 2011 MLS SuperDraft, thereby helping Akron set a record for the most players drafted in the first round and the most players drafted overall from one school in an MLS SuperDraft. After missing the first several months of the season with an injury, he made his professional debut on June 4, 2011, as a late substitute in a 2-0 loss to Real Salt Lake.
