Clemson men's soccer player Thomas McNamara has been invited to the MLS Player Combine that will take place in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., January 10-14.

The MLS invited 50 NCAA Division I college seniors to showcase their talents at the 2014 adidas MLS Player Combine. The 2014 MLS SuperDraft will take place on January 16 in Philadelphia (noon ET).

A graduate student at Clemson, McNamara graduated with a degree in economics from Brown. The native of West Nyack, NY led Clemson in scoring with seven goals and eight assists for 22 points in 2013. He also became the first Tiger soccer player in seven years to be named first-team All-Atlantic Coast Conference.

In 2013, McNamara was named ACC Player-of-the-Week twice and National Player-of-the-Week once. He was also named to the ACC All-Tournament team.

He scored four game-winning goals this season while leading the Tigers (11-7-3) to the first round of the NCAA Tournament. This week McNarama was named to the NSCAA All-South region team.

A committee consisting of NCAA Division I coaches and MLS representatives selected the 50 seniors. They will be joined at the adidas MLS Player Combine by other seniors from other NCAA divisions, and underclassmen who signed Generation adidas contracts and as well as other international invitees.
