1. Davies decides to go pro

Charlie Davies, a leading candidate for 2006 Men's Player of the Year honors, is leaving Boston College to turn pro after only his second full season with the Eagles.

Davies won the ACC Offensive Player of the Year award and is a finalist for the Hermann Trophy after scoring 15 goals in 16 games for the Eagles. He suffered a knee injury in the first game of the 2005 season and missed the rest of the season, BC's first in ACC, during which it went winless in conference play.

The 20-year-old product of Manchester, N.H., must decide between signing with MLS and pursuing European offers. According to the Manchester Union Leader, Davies will try out with Dutch club Ajax and France's Marseille in two weeks if no deal with MLS is struck. Davies said it was time to leave college soccer -- a decision he came to after lengthy discussions with veteran BC coach Ed Kelly.

"If it's a good enough offer [from MLS] and everything seems right, I probably won't go to Europe," Davies told the Union Leader.
