He attended the MLS Player Combine, January 6–10, 2012 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He then headed to Kansas City, Missouri for the 2012 MLS SuperDraft where he was selected in the 1st Round (13th overall pick) by the Philadelphia Union, becoming the first player from Alabama ever selected in the MLS SuperDraft.[5]

Hoffman made his professional debut on March 31, 2012 when he started for the Philadelphia Union in a regular season home game at PPL Park against the Vancouver Whitecaps.[6]

Hoffman was loaned to USL Pro club Harrisburg City Islanders for two matches on April 20–21, 2012.[7]
