Furman senior Coleton Henningis among the 54 NCAA Division I college seniors invited to participate in the 2013 adidas MLS Player Combine, it was announced on Tuesday afternoon by Major League Soccer.
Two MAC Hermann Trophy Finalists, 15 All-Americans and eight Men’s College Cup Final Four participants are among the players that will take the field in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. from January 11-15. All invited players will be eligible for selection in the 2013 MLS SuperDraft presented by adidas which will take place on January 17, in Indianapolis, Ind., at 12 p.m. ET.
Henning, a native of Shawnee, Kan., and the 2011 SoCon Player of the Year, was named to the All-SoCon First Team for the third time in his Paladin career this past season after netting eight goals in 17 matches. The forward/midfielder, who finished his five-year run at Furman with 24 goals and 12 assists, became the first three-time first team selection for Furman since Jon Leathers accomplished the feat in 2007.
A committee of NCAA Division I coaches from every conference, as well as MLS representatives, selected the invitees, all of whom completed their college eligibility this season. Generation adidas signings, non-collegiate players, and additional college seniors will be announced in the coming weeks.
