MLS Adds to Rookie Class
With the scouting combine starting Friday in Fort Lauderdale and the draft in Philadelphia 10 days away, MLS is in the process of finalizing its collection of first-year players who will be available for selection.
The Generation Adidas list includes 12 players who have left school early:
MF Corben Bone (Wake Forest)

GK Sean Johnson (Central Florida)
F Danny Mwanga (Oregon State)
MF Amobi Okugo (UCLA)

MF Tony Tchani (Virginia)
MF Andrew Wiedeman (California)
F Teal Bunbury (Akron)
MF Dilly Duka (Rutgers)

The league has also signed seniors .....
GK Brian Perk (UCLA)
MF Austin da Luz (Wake Forest)
F Andre Akpan (Harvard)
MF-D Zach Loyd (North Carolina)

These players are under contract and won't require negotiations following the draft. Seniors who do not sign with the league before the draft have the right to pursue opporunities overseas.
