The technical staff will dig for a diamond in the rough.

The Crew SC are once again hosting college players from around the midwest in an effort to better assess the draft eligible prospects ahead of the 2015 SuperDraft. The technical staff will oversee the event on December 14th in hopes of replicating last year's success when they targeted Adam Bedell. Bedell was drafted in the third round out of the University of Detroit Mercy. He scored two goals in 16 appearances.

The Crew SC have been aggressive in surveying the college soccer scene. Members of the technical staff have been seen at recent College Cup games and the team has been scouting throughout the fall college season in preparation for the draft.

The expectation among league watchers has been that the draft would decline in importance as the league looks towards homegrown talent, but with plenty of talent still available, the team is trying to gain every edge possible by looking at every option to upgrade the roster.
