The five-player Generation adidas class is officially complete ahead of next week’s MLS SuperDraft.
Headlining the class is the top prospect on the SBI Big Board, UConn forward Cyle Larin, as well as No. 2 and No. 3 in Washington midfielder Christian Roldan and Central Florida forward Romario Williams, respectively. Rounding out the class is top goalkeeping prospect Alex Bono out of Syracuse and NC State defender Connor Donovan.
Bono and Roldan both enter the draft with the distinction of being named All-Americans, while Larin and Donovan are currently preparing to participate in the 2015 CONCACAF U-20 Championships with Canada and the U.S., respectively.
In addition, the league announced that five international players would partake in the upcoming MLS Combine. Adrian Antonio Reta (Argentina), Braian Matias Acuna (Argentina), Carlos Alberto Riascos Guaza (Colombia), Vladimir Eric Hood (USA/Peru) and Juan Carlos Moscosa (Dominican Republic) will all be on hand in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, with Moscosa earning his invite to the combine after impressing at last week’s Caribbean Combine.
