The Major League Soccer Combine set for next month finally has some players to go along with it. The league has finalized the list of names they are scheduled to invite to the Combine and the four teams left in the College Cup are definitely well represented.

A total of 54 seniors are on the initial invite list, mostly no shockers of who will be invited by the league. Only a couple players were missing that some will be surprised by like Monmouth’s Ryan Kinne or Virginia keeper Diego Restrepo. Just keep in mind injuries could play a factor in some players missing. Also some players could have declined the invite to pursue other options.

This list will grow as the league officially signs their Generation adidas class for this draft. I’m being told that they could sign most of the GA players by end of the month (or year if you will).

Here is the complete list if senior MLS Combine invitees (Note: if the official list that is expected to be released later this week has any changes I’ll update this list here):
