The MLS Combine is done and dusted, and soon all eyes will turn to Chicago for the first two rounds of the 2019 SuperDraft on Friday; we will, of course, have Live Coverage for you. But until then, there is still some unfinished business as to who impressed, and what occurred during Wednesday’s games in Orlando.
First off, Needham native Harry Swartz played only 12-plus minutes of the second game Wednesday.
The Northeastern man went down after suffering a knock just under his left knee and was down for about a minute and a half. We observed him holding the area under his knee, but he ended up walking off the pitch under his own power. He was replaced by North Carolina/Generation Adidas defender John Nelson for the remainder of the first half of Game 2, and did not return for the second 40-minute session.
Swartz has had a history of injuries during his time on Huntington Avenue, so we’re thinking that if someone drafts him, he would be a depth piece. If not, a USL club could find a way to include him in their plans.
Secondly, BC’s Simon Enstrom had a better performance Wednesday.
