The MLS soccer combine will be held in the beginning of January, and like every year only a few selected players from across the nation get invited (58 in total I believe). These players are the best college seniors and underclassmen declaring for the draft this year. To earn an invite to the combine alone is quite an honor, though this in no way guarantees being drafted. The following PSU player has earned an invite and will attend the 3 day combine event...
Matheus Braga, Penn State, Midfielder
The invitees will compete in a series of scrimmages that will also include members of the Generation adidas class (underclassmen) and select players from lower division schools. A notable omission from this list is PSU Forward Corey Hertzog, who was a semi-finalist for the Hermann Trophy. Details haven't been fully released yet, but there could be a number of reasons for this including the fact that he is a Jr. and therefore could have bypassed the invite to partake in his senior year, felt his draft status was solid enough and declined, or could potentially be pursuing options overseas. Still, congratulations to Matheus Braga!
