Major League Soccer announced on Thursday the initial list of 60 NCAA Division I college players invited to participate at the 2018 MLS adidas Player Combine in Orlando.
The league will hold its annual combine from Jan. 11-17 at Orlando City Stadium, with representatives from all 23 MLS clubs scouting the top college prospects ahead of the Jan. 19 MLS SuperDraft in Philadelphia.
A committee of MLS coaches and NCAA D1 coaches from every conference selected the invitees, all of whom completed their college eligibility this season. Further invitees, including Generation adidas signings and non-college players, will be announced in coming weeks.
2017 MAC Hermann Trophy finalists Wake Forest forward Jon Bakero and Stanford defender Tomas Hilliard-Arce headline the list of invitees, who will be coached at the Combine by a mix of college soccer head coaches and MLS academy personnel.
