Major League Soccer today announced the signings of three collegiate seniors and four underclassmen to Major League Soccer contracts, including two of the three finalists for the MAC Hermann Trophy: Andre Akpan (Harvard University) and Teal Bunbury (Akron University). MLS teams and adidas identified these players as some of the most promising young soccer players in the country, and they have signed contracts making them available for selection in the upcoming 2010 MLS SuperDraft.

The two heralded seniors who, along with Akpan, have signed with MLS prior to the draft are Zach Loyd (UNC-Chapel Hill) and Toni Stahl (University of Connecticut).

Joining Bunbury as the other highly touted underclassmen signing via Generation adidas are Dilly Duka (Rutgers University), Blair Gavin (Akron University) and Jack McInerney (US U-17/Cobb Soccer Club). The full 2010 Generation adidas class will be completed in the coming weeks with an announcement expected in early January.

Akpan and Bunbury are two of the finalists for the MAC Hermann Trophy, college soccer’s version of the Heisman Trophy. Akpan finished his collegiate career at Harvard University as the school’s all-time leading scorer with 127 points (47 goals, 33 assists), was the 2009 Ivy League Player of the Year and a three-time finalist for the MAC Hermann Trophy.
