Major League Soccer announced the rosters for the upcoming MLS Combine and several of the top players in the draft will not be taking part.

Four Generation adidas players (Perry Kitchen, Zarek Valentin, Zac MacMath and Omar Salgado) will miss the Combine because of U.S. Under-20 national team commitments, while Akron striker Darlington Nagbe will also sit out the Combine for undisclosed reasons.

MLS also revealed the identities of five non-college foreign players who will also be available in the MLS Draft and will take part in the MLS Combine. John Rooney, brother of English star Wayne Rooney, Victor Estupinan (Ecuador), Paolo Cardozo (Honduras), Marlon Ganchozo (Ecuador) and Martin Rivas (Argentina) will take part in the Combine under a new MLS initiative approved by league owners this off-season.

Seven new college players were added to the mix, with Monmouth standout Ryan Kinne being included to the list after inexplicably being left off the initial list. Andy Adlard (Indiana), Charlie Campbell (Louisville), Matt Marcin (Providence), Ben Sippola (Butler), Alex Caskey (Davidson) and Chris Taylor (Tulsa) were the other college players added to the Combine rosters.
