The NSCAA Convention's move to sunny Los Angeles -- weather forecast isn't good, though -- prompted MLS to move its adidas Player Combine to nearby Carson, California, home of the LA Galaxy, and push back its schedule. Games will be played Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday, a day before the SuperDraft at the LA Convention Center.

2017 adidas Player Combine: Rosters

In recent years, the Combine was held in Lauderhill, Florida, and finished on a Tuesday, giving coaches and players a travel day before Thursday's SuperDraft at the NSCAA Convention, which is usually held in the Northeast or Midwest.

Players to watch include former Duke University and current U.S. U-20 forward Jeremy Ebobisse (Team Copa), who signed with MLS last summer and is expected to be taken by Minnesota United with the first pick.

UCLA's Abu Danladi and Syracuse's Miles Robinson, who both signed Generation adidas contracts this week, will play for Team Nemeziz.

Stanford, the 2015 and 2016 NCAA champion, has one player at the Combine: Brian Nana-Sinkam, who'll play with Danladi and Robinson.

UCLA Jackson Yeuill, the third U.S. collegian signed to a GA deal, will represent Team Control.

In all 10 players enter the Combine having already signed MLS contracts. Four seniors -- American Brandon Aubrey (Notre Dame), German Julian Gressel (Providence), Bermudan Zeiko Lewis (Boston College) and Canadian Brian Wright (Vermont) -- signed with the league this week.
