TAMPA - Three Bulls have gone pro and fans soon will get to see exactly where they're going.
The Major League Soccer SuperDraft begins at noon on Thursday and will be broadcast live on ESPN2. USF's Dom Dwyer, Chris Blais and Aubrey Perry will be looking to get selected after helping the USF men's soccer team win the Big East Red Division title and make it to the Elite Eight this season.
USF was one of five college teams in the country to have three or more players invited to the MLS Combine, which recently wrapped up in Fort Lauderdale.
"It says a lot about the quality of players we had on the team," USF head coach George Kiefer said. "I think it also paints a good picture for the younger guys because all three of these guys were team guys. They worked for the team and it paid off for all three of them."
Dwyer, a junior forward, led the Big East with 16 goals this season on the way to becoming the conference's offensive player of the year and a two-time All-American. He recently signed a contract with Generation adidas, which promotes and assists college players who declare early for the draft.
Blais, a senior keeper, started every game for USF (13-4-4), posted eight shutouts and allowed 0.81 goals per contest in his lone season with the Bulls.
Perry is USF's all-time leader in games played and games started. The senior started the past two straight seasons.
The MLS SuperDraft takes place in Kansas City, Mo. and features two rounds with a total of 38 selections.
