Creighton star and Hermann Trophy finalist Fabian Herbers will skip his senior season to enter the MLS draft.

The draft will be held Thursday in Baltimore.

"I am excited for Fabian [Herbers] and the opportunity for him to continue his career in the MLS," Creighton head coach Elmar Bolowich said. "He had a stellar junior year for the Bluejays. We are very proud of his accomplishments and wish him well in his professional pursuit."

Herbers, who was unanimously selected as the Big East offensive player of the year, finished in the top 10 in goals and assists this season.

In just three seasons at Creighton, Herbers' 85 career points rank fourth among active players in NCAA Division I.

Currently, five Creighton alumni are active in Major League Soccer: Mehdi Ballouchy, Ethan Finlay, Eric Miller, Chris Schuler and Seth Sinovic, though Herbers and Bluejay teammates Timo Pitter, Vincent Keller, Eric DeJulio and Connor Sparrow all are candidates to be selected in the upcoming draft.
