College Sport USA's Ashley McInnes Invited to attend Elite MLS Combine

College Sport USA is delighted to announce that our recruit Ashley McInnes, of Aberdeen, Scotland has been invited to participate in the forthcoming MLS Combine.

The MLS Combine features the elite college players with a view to drafting them into the professional game in the United States.

College Sport USA's Sporting Futures Manager, David Binnie commented that - "We are absolutely thrilled for Ashley that he has been pre-selected to attend the MLS Combine. Ashley was first spotted playing for Aberdeen FC's Youth programme back here in Scotland and he has gone on to achieve a terrific level of consistency during his four years in college. It really goes to show that if a young British lad works hard enough and has the confidence in his ability of playing pro in the United States then the collegiate system in the US is an ideal platform. Ashley will now quite rightly be held up as the bench mark for all of our talented youngsters leaving to take up their places in college."
