MLS signs six collegians ahead of SuperDraft

Major League Soccer signed four underclassmen as part of its 2020 Generation adidas class, and the two seniors eligible for selection in the 2020 MLS SuperDraft also agreed to terms with the league.

Expansion clubs Inter Miami and Nashville SC hold the first three picks -- Inter Miami first and third, and Nashville SC second -- in the SuperDraft that will be held on Jan. 9. Teams will make their selections via conference call instead of on site as they had previously done for many years at the United Soccer Coaches Convention.
