The 2024 Major League Soccer season kicks off this week on February 21.

TDS returns with a look at the Top 50 prospects in the league. There has been substantial improvement in the league's ability to identify and setup young players on a pathway to success, even if there is ample room to grow.

This year's list follows the following criteria: players must be eligible to play for the United States or Canada, played less than 3,000 MLS minutes, have an MLS contract and are born January 1, 2004 or after. That means a young player like Caleb Wiley, who would be high on this list, over the minutes threshold. Players under an MLS contract but loaned out are also eligible. As always, it's an attempt to identify the top prospects under contract that have bright futures, balanced with projecting contributions in the upcoming season.

Below is a list of the Top 50 prospects that made the list, in alphabetical order, plus 20 others that were eligible and received consideration. An article will be released each day this week from Monday through Friday.

Top 50 Rankings: Nos. 41-50 | 31-40 | 21-30 | 11-20 | 1-10

Others Considered: Cody Baker (Seattle Sounders FC), Micah Burton (Austin FC), Adam Beaudry (Colorado Rapids), Luke Brennan (Atlanta United), Ozzie Cisneros (Sporting KC), Noah Cobb (Atlanta United), Chance Cowell (San Jose Earthquakes), Bajung Darboe (LAFC), Duran Ferree (San Diego FC), Tyler Hall (Inter Miami CF), Stiven Jimenez (FC Cincinnati), Sawyer Jura (Portland Timbers FC), Favian Loyola (Orlando City SC), Edwyn Mendoza (San Jose Earthquakes), Jack Neeley (Charlotte FC), Nolan Norris (FC Dallas), Tyson Pearce (St. Louis City SC), Tahir Reid-Brown (Orlando City SC), Brian Romero (Charlotte FC), Alejandro Urzua (FC Dallas)
