One hundred forty-three players are on the preliminary list of players eligible for the 2015 National Women’s Soccer League College Draft. The list includes two of the three finalists for the MAC Hermann Trophy, to be named later Friday.

Reigning MAC Hermann Trophy winner and former University of Virginia midfielder Morgan Brian, long expected to be the No. 1 selection by the Houston Dash, is draft-eligible, along with former UCLA midfielder Sam Mewis. Former Florida State midfielder Dagný Brynjarsdóttir has not declared for the draft, as expected, and reportedly signed with a Frauen-Bundesliga team.

Also notably missing from the list of players declared for the draft is former Florida State defender Megan Campbell, who was a key piece to the team’s 2014 NCAA national championship run. Although she was listed as a senior in 2014, a source tells The Equalizer that Campbell has a year of eligibility remaining and wishes to use that.

Former Georgetown midfielder Daphne Corboz, who is a dual citizen in the U.S. and France, is eligible to be drafted.

Ally Courtnall, a defender out of UCLA, is not on the list and will not play in the NWSL, UCLA coach Amanda Cromwell told The Equalizer’s Harjeet Johal.

Registration for the draft closes on Wednesday. The draft will take place on Friday, Jan. 16 at 9:30 a.m. ET at the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) Convention in Philadelphia. Outgoing college players must declare for the draft to be eligible to play in the NWSL this season.

The full list of draft-eligible players is below. The current order for the four-round, 36-pick draft can be found here.

The NWSL says it will hos a live draft chat on, “including expert analysis from Division I women’s soccer head coaches.” Fans can follow the draft on Twitter, including live analysis from The Equalizer.
