[MLS] The ranks of Generation adidas players eligible for selection in the MLS SuperDraft next Thursday in Baltimore has increased to 10 with the signing of UC Santa Barbara midfielder/defender Michael Tetteh.

Tetteh, who passed up the chance to sign with MLS last year, will forgo his senior season at UC Santa Barbara and attend the MLS Player Combine in Fort Lauderdale this weekend. He is the third Gaucho to sign a GA contract, joining Ciaran O’Brien and Eric Avila, who turned pro prior to the 2008 SuperDraft.

The 22-year-old native of Accra, Ghana, has lived in the U.S. since 2005 and played only 15 games this past season because of injuries. He scored a spectacular goal in what turned out to be his final college game, a 2-1 playoff loss at California in the NCAA second round. In his college career, he played 59 games, scored six goals and earned eight assists.

He joins the nine GA players announced by MLS last week: forwards Corey Hertzog (Penn State), Will Braun (Indiana) and Omar Salgado (no college, U.S. U-20s); midfielders Darlington Nagbe and Michael Nanchoff (both Akron); defenders Perry Kitchen, Kofi Sarkodie and Zarek Valentin (all Akron); and goalkeeper Zac MacMath (Maryland).

Tetteh will be added to one of the four MLS Combine team rosters, which were announced Tuesday.

They include five foreign players from outside the college system: midfielders Paolo Cardozo (Uruguay), Marlon Ganchozo (Ecuador), Martin Rivas (Argentina) and John Rooney (England); and Ecuadoran forward Victor Estupinan.
