#ClemsonUnited Professional Alumni

Clemson men’s soccer team has a long tradition of sending players to the professional ranks, sending our first player to the North America Soccer League (NASL) in 1974. We had four players selected in the first edition of the MLS draft and have had a steady presence ever since. Our brand is felt around the world, with alumni currently playing and coaching in three different countries. A history of excellence is synonymous with our program and we spend each day making ourselves better.
