ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - Starting Friday, former UCF standouts Warren Creavalle and Kevan George will continue their quests to play at the professional level when competition begins at the MLS Combine in Fort Lauderdale. The two midfielders are among a group of 52 players who have been invited to the combine.
Creavalle and George concluded stellar college careers in November. They were both selected to the All-Conference USA First Team this past season when they helped the Knights advance to the second round of the NCAA Championship for the second-consecutive year. UCF was ranked in the top-25 nationally for nearly the entire campaign, and moved to as high as No. 6.
In 2011, Creavalle appeared in 17 contests, making 16 starts. He recorded one goal and three assists during the year. Prior to the campaign, the Georgia native was named to the MAC Hermann Trophy Watch List. After his junior season, when he tallied four goals and 12 assists, Creavalle garnered NSCAA All-America Third Team honors.
George had a pair of goals and seven assists this past year, when he started all 21 contests for the Knights. During his four-year career, he started all 73 matches and recorded six goals and 16 assists, which ranks 10th in program history. A native of Trinidad, George was a three-time All-C-USA First Team selection.
At the combine, the duo will play matches on Friday, Sunday and Tuesday. The MLS SuperDraft will be held on Jan. 12 in Kansas City.
