MLS extends 2013 Combine invite to 54 college players


It’s an East Coast-heavy MLS Combine scheduled for January, with players from the ACC and Big East dominating the 54-strong list of seniors scheduled to take part, which was unveiled by MLS on Tuesday.

The highest-profile names are the Big East trio of Dillon Powers and Ryan Finley (Notre Dame), and UConn’s Carlos Alvarez. All three are expected to be first-round picks, as is Maryland’s John Stertzer.

Below is the initial list.
Generation adidas signees as well as several overseas talents will be added to the final Combine group:
