Does anyone know how many Canadians are playing in NCAA D1 schools/teams this year? 

I know they’ve realeased Rankings for the Top 50-100 Senior, Junior, Sophomore and Freshman players etc 

Obviously their is so many divisions/conferences 

Any idea? 

Its gotta be over 100.  Syracuse has 6 all by itself.

I checked out the top 10 ranked schools and there are 13 in the top 10 alone, so it seems we are doing pretty well.

Alistair Johnston Wake Forest
Alex Comsia North Carolina
Mohamed Omar Notre Dame
Kamal Miller Syracuse
Massimo Ferrin Syracuse
Simon Triantafillou Syracuse
Tajon Buchanan Syracuse
Hilli Goldhar Syracuse
Nathaniel St. Louis Syracuse
Ryan Raposo Syracuse
Nikal Clarke-Smith Virginia Tech
Oliver Spring Duke
Brock Lindow Kentucky

Hope we see a CPL/NCAA Import Draft! These players cannot go un-noticed just because they decided to study in the states and not in Canada (U Sports)

At the end of the day both matter but one level is higher than the other

I doubt that will happen.

I am curious to see if MLS teams use the CPL draft to poach players from CPL. We may see some more NCAA Canadians deciding to stay home and play U Sports while opting to spend their summers in CPL.

I wonder how long before players that have success get invited to the MLS combine through playing in CPL while in school

I haven't looked at all the lists but Alex Comsia has won ACC defensive player of the year and Callum Montgomery has won CUSA defensive player of the year 

Also, Tajon Buchanan got ACC first team Honors ( aswell as comsia)

Kamal Miller got ACC third team and Ryan Raposo got ACC Freshman team

Akron had a bad season before the conference championships but they won the MAC conference championship so got a place in the tournament..Marcel Zajac scored two goals in the final, has been very good for them..they also have Canadians Leonard Sohn, Ivan Nikolic and Faisal Ghaffur who didnt play much

UConn is also in the tournament with Munir Saleh who is still a starter, Dayonn Harris who became a starter and had 5 goals 6 assists and Catalano and Yeates who played in usl with TFCII this season

Syracuse didnt have a great record but beat #1 Wake Forrest..apart from Kamal Miller, Massimo Ferrin, Tajon Buchanan and Ryan Raposo were also starters while Triantafillou, Goldhar and St. Louis were mostly backups

Will be interesting to see how high Miller and Comsia will go at the pro level

Are we expecting any Canadians to be drafted in the upcoming MLS SuperDraft? 

I would hope so, the last few years we’ve had quite a few

Very upsetting that this year there were none selected.

Both defenders.  Maybe we don't have to naturalize Nick Hagglund after all. 🙄

I think Zajac still has a year of college ball left.  But if they slap a Gen Adidas tag on him and he comes out early that would be ok.  Same with Buchanon at Syracuse.  

Two Sigma boys.  If MLS doen't snap them up at some point Forge FC will.

Neither Comsia nor Montgomery make the list of 3 finalists for the MAC Hermann Trophy.
