Updated 12/11/2012

CLEVELAND, Ohio – The Major League Soccer unveiled its list of seniors invited to participate in the 2013 Adidas MLS Player Combine. Akron goalkeeper David Meves, alongside West Virginia men’s soccer players Uwem Etuk and Eric Schoenle are among a group of 54 NCAA Division I college seniors that were invited to the event which takes place Jan. 11-15.

Meves, a native of Arlington Heights, Ill., finishes his four-year Akron career as the Zips' all-time leader for wins (77) and the NCAA's leader for shutouts (54) and minutes played (8,608). His career goals-against-average of 0.50 is the lowest mark in school history and tied for fifth-best all-time.
 
Etuk was most recently named to the NSCAA All-Great Lakes Region Third Team after starting all 17 contests in 2012, and recording two goals with a team-leading six assists. Etuk played in 75 career games with eight goals, 18 assists and 34 points, including three game-winning goals.
 
Schoenle, a two-year All-American, played in 17 games last season, leading the Mountaineers with six goals, including two game-winners. He completed his four-year career with 75 games played, 14 goals, five assists, 33 points and seven game-winning goals.
 
All invited players will be eligible for selection in 2013 SuperDraft, which will take place on January 17 in Indianapolis at 12 p.m. ET.
 
A committee of NCAA Division I coaches from every conference, as well as MLS representatives, selected the invitees, all of whom completed their college eligibility this season. Generation Adidas signings, non-collegiate players, and additional college seniors will be announced in the coming weeks.
