The college soccer season kicks off today and while there is a large number of top prospects bypassing college to turn pro, there is still plenty of talent to watch for those wondering about which players will be turning pro in the coming years.
There are two different groups of players to keep an eye on. On one side, you have players who could be part of the 2017 MLS Draft, and you have players who could be signing homegrown player deals.
