MLS announced pre-MLS SuperDraft signings

Major League Soccer has announced the 2012 Generation adidas class and four additional college senior signings. These players and many other seniors will participate in the adidas MLS Player Combine Jan. 6-10 at Central Broward Regional Park in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. Combine matches will be closed to the public but fans can watch the matches live on MLSsoccer.com.

The five Generation adidas signings are Sam Garza (from Highland Village, Texas, and UCSB), Chandler Hoffman (UCLA), Darren Mattocks (Akron), Kelyn Rowe (UCLA), and Andrew Wenger (Duke). In addition to the Generation adidas signings, MLS added four college seniors to the list of signees as Tony Cascio (UConn), Nick DeLeon (Louisville), Luis Silva (UCSB), and Casey Townsend (Maryland) signed MLS contracts in advance of the 2012 MLS SuperDraft.

The 2012 MLS SuperDraft presented by adidas will take place at the Kansas City Convention Center on Thursday, Jan. 12 at 12 p.m. ET and will be broadcast live on ESPN2, TSN2, and RDS2.

There will likely be more signings by MLS prior to the draft as the league has widely been reported talking to a few more candidates.
