Just as the league officially announced the Generation adidas class this afternoon, they also announced the signing of several college seniors for next month’s SuperDraft.

Michael Farfan, Stephen McCarthy, and Jalil Anibaba from the University of North Carolina join California defender A.J. Soares to the short list of early signings.

We had word earlier in the week from UNC that the three Tar Heel players were signed with the league and on Monday Soares announced on his twitter feed that he signed. All four players were recently projected to go in the first round in my latest mock draft.

Who’s next to join them? Likely Akron’s Anthony Ampaipitakwong is up next to sign with the league before the Combine. I’d imagine there will be a couple others joining him too but I haven’t heard any other names at the moment.
