MADISON, WI (LEARFIELD-WSAU)Wisconsin men's soccer defenseman A-J Cochran is giving up his senior year to turn pro.  Cochran has signed a deal with the "Generation Adidas" program, which makes him eligible for the Major League Soccer Draft next Wednesday.

 Cochran was the Big Ten's defensive player-of-the-year last fall, and scored a pair of game-winning goals along the way.  He was also a semi-finalist for the Hermann Trophy, given each year to college soccer's top player.  

TopDrawerSoccer-Dot-Com projects him to be a Top-10 pick in the M-L-S Draft.

 Badgers' coach John Trask said Cochran's pro prospects are quote, "a tremendous testament to the work he has put in at the U-W."  Trask called it an exciting time for the Badger soccer program.  

By signing with Generation Adidas, he'll be eligible for funding to complete his college degree in the future.
