MLS announces Generation adidas class, senior signings

MLS Logo.jpgAs noted earlier this morning, Federal Way native Kelyn Rowe has signed with MLS as a member of Generation adidas. The UCLA sophomore is the reigning Pac-12 Player of the Year and is expected to be a top pick in January’s MLS SuperDraft. The league website just posted a Q&A with Rowe and a scouting report.

The league announced the rest of the five-man GA class Thursday, as well as the signings of four college seniors. Additional signings are expected before the draft.

All nine will participate in the MLS combine from Jan. 6-10 in Florida, of which about 65 players will attend. More information on the combine, like rosters and coaching staffs, will be available later, but games will be streamed on MLSsoccer.com.
