2014 MLS SuperDraft Profiles: Ntokozo “Schillo” Tshuma

Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

The Generation adidas attacker from Maryland has a solid upside to his game.

The 2014 MLS SuperDraft is right around the corner. FC Dallas has a top five pick so the chances of landing a quality player are certainly there for Fernando Clavijo and his technical staff. Today we're looking at another Generation adidas player, a midfielder/forward from the University of Maryland, Schillo Tshuma.

Tshuma had a down year in 2013 after a breakout freshman campaign in 2012 that saw him score 10 goals. The Zimbabwe product scored only six goals in 2013 but was good enough to catch the eyes of many MLS scouts. He helped push Maryland to a College Cup final in 2013, along with FC Dallas academy alumni Mikey Ambrose.

Tshuma isn't a big player and isn't truly a forward like the league lists him as. He is more of a winger for the pro level, and has the speed that teams really are interested in having on the field. From what I've seen out of him, he reminds me of a guy similar to Marvin Chavez, only a little better at finishing the ball.

He's still a bit raw as a player but the Generation adidas cap relief will certainly make picking him worth the risk. Tshmua is really one of only a couple good attacking prospects in this draft that are worth taking at the number five spot. The other two (Patrick Mullins and Steve Neumann) won't come with the cap relief that Tshmua will.

So far in a couple mock drafts that are out there, Tshmua is going anywhere from 4th to 8th, making him a guy that is likely in FCD's radar.
