The 2015 season is over for the New England Revolution which means that head coach Jay Heaps is fully focused on 2016. Part of the process for preparing for a new season is scouting college talent.

Heaps was reportedly at Shaw Field watching Georgetown host Creighton, according to a tweet from Travis Clark of Top Drawer Soccer. Travis also saw representatives from the Portland Timbers, Seattle Sounders, and D.C. United.

With MLS scouts present, Georgetown was victorious, grabbing a 2-1 result via junior forward Brett Campbell and senior defender Cole Seiler. Creighton's sole tally was scored by sophomore midfielder/forward Fabian Herbers.

Though the SuperDraft is still two months away, scouting is a continuous activity for MLS teams. This is especially true for the Revs, who have long put an emphasis on draft. Many of the team's regular starters, including Andrew Farrell and Kelyn Rowe, honed their skills at the collegiate level.

The Revs currently have two Georgetown alums on their roster in Steve Neumann and Tyler Rudy. Only time will tell if another Hoya will relocate to New England.
