CLEMSON, S.C. — Clemson men’s soccer players Hamady Diop, Isaiah Reid and Ousmane Sylla have been invited to the third-ever adidas MLS College Showcase. The event will take place from Dec. 9-12 in Raleigh, North Carolina in conjunction with the 2022 NCAA Men’s College Cup and in advance of the 2023 MLS SuperDraft presented by adidas on Dec. 21.
The 2022 adidas MLS College Showcase will feature 44 top college players, ranging from freshmen to graduate students, participating in a series of training sessions, testing, interviews, and match play. the event allows MLS clubs to scout and interact with potential MLS SuperDraft selections across different stages of their collegiate careers, and does not threaten any of the athletes’ remaining eligibility.

Reid, a native of Rock Hill, S.C. and a captain of the 2022 squad was the hero of the 2021 National Championship, scoring both of Clemson’s two goals in the match and earning the College Cup Offensive MVP nod. He scored three goals in the 2022 season, bringing his career total to 14.
Sylla, a two time All-ACC and All-South Region player, led the Tigers in goals and assists in the 2022 season, and was named the Dalton Family Team MVP on Wednesday, Dec. 7.
