Daryl Dike goal celebration for Virginia

The Generation adidas class for the 2020 SuperDraft was completed on Tuesday, as sophomore Virginia forward Daryl Dike finalized a Generation adidas contract and will be eligible for selection in Thursday's SuperDraft (12:30 pm ET).


Dike led Virginia to the final of the College Cup, scoring a goal in the final as the Cavaliers fell to Georgetown in a penalty-kick shootout. Dike finished the season with 10 goals and eight assists and was named to the USC All-American Third Team. Over the course of his college career, Dike had 15 goals and nine assists in 36 matches.


The Oklahoma native is the younger brother of former MLS striker Bright Dike, who played five seasons in MLS with the Portland Timbers and Toronto FC.


Rated as one of the top prospects in college soccer, Travis Clark named him as one of the prime candidates to be picked No. 1 by Inter Miami CF. He is the fifth player to join the Generation adidas class.


Generation adidas is a joint program between MLS and adidas which sees a handful of top collegiate underclassmen and youth national team players signed by MLS to Generation adidas contracts and made available in the SuperDraft.


Expansion clubs Inter Miami and Nashville SC will have the first selections at the 2020 MLS SuperDraft presented by adidas, with Miami selecting first and third, and Nashville second. The complete list of players available for selection will be available within 48 hours prior to the draft.
