NORFOLK, VA -Senior midfielder Kevon Harris (Kingston, Jamaica) was one of 66 college seniors selected to participate in the 2005 Major League Soccer Player Combine, and one of three from the Colonial Athletic Association. The Player Combine will be held at The Home Depot Center in Carson, CA from January 8-11, 2005. Harris, a All-CAA First Team and All-South Atlantic First Team selection this year, led the Monarchs in scoring with 19 points (seven goals, five assists), and helped ODU secure it's first NCAA Tournament seeding in school history.
MLS general managers and members of all 12 MLS coaching staffs will be in attendance to scout talent at the event leading up to the 2005 MLS SuperDraft. The combine will take place just a few days before the SuperDraft, which will be held in Baltimore, MD on Friday, January 14. Last year, a total of 42 players who participated in the 2004 Player Combine were eventually selected in the 2004 MLS SuperDraft, in which a total of 60 players were selected. Attila Vendegh represented the Monarchs in the draft last year.
The field of players was determined by a select panel of Division I college coaches in conjunction with MLS coaches and the consultation of select Division II, Division III and NAIA coaches.
George Mason Goalkeeper John O'Hara and Virginia Commonwealth's Defender Gonzalo Segares will also represent the CAA at the Player Combine.
