Wake Forest and Ohio State players picked for pro combine
December 13th, 2007 8:01AM



Three players each from Men's College Cup finalists Wake Forest (Brian Edwards, Julian Valentin and Pat Phelan) and Ohio State (Casey Latchem, Eric Brunner and Xavier Balc) head the initial list of 54 players invited to the 2008 adidas MLS Player Combine, which will be held Jan. 11-15 at Lockhart Stadium in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.

No players from the other two final four participants, Massachusetts and Virginia Tech, were selected.

The draft concludes three days before the 2008 MLS SuperDraft to be held on Jan. 18 in Baltimore.

Four college coaches -- Mike Jeffries, the Duke assistant head coach, Ed Kelly, head coach at Boston College for the past 20 seasons, Bobby Muuss, in his first season as the head coach at Denver after six years as the top assistant coach at Wake Forest, and Tim Lenahan, head coach of Northwestern -- will work with the four teams that will be formed for the combine.
