MLS 2022 College Showcase: The 44 players who aim to impress

The MLS College Showcase will take place Dec. 9-12 in Raleigh, North Carolina in conjunction with the 2022 NCAA Men’s College Cup in nearby Cary, North Carolina.

The 44 college players — from freshmen to graduate students — will participate in training sessions, testing, interviews and game play. The showcase is designed for MLS clubs to scout and interact with potential MLS SuperDraft selections "across different stages of their collegiate careers without jeopardizing players’ collegiate eligibility."

Players on the four College Cup teams — Indiana, Pitt, Syracuse, Creighton — will not participate in the showcase. But technical staffs from MLS clubs will attend the semifinals Dec. 9 and final Dec. 12.

Fourteen players who participated in the 2021 adidas MLS College Showcase are currently on MLS rosters.
