MLS has named the first 58 players -- from 44 Division I schools -- who will attend a combine in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. Jan. 5-8 to be viewed by MLS coaches in preparation for the 2007 MLS SuperDraft Jan. 12 in Indianapolis.

Last year, 23 of the 48 players selected in the 2006 MLS SuperDraft participated in the 2006 combine.

The 58 players were chosen by a select panel of Division I college coaches who nominated and voted for players in conjunction with MLS coaches.
