BENDIGO Pioneers midfielder Jaden McGrath is among 96 young stars invited to this year's AFL Draft Combine.
The four-day camp will be at Melbourne's Etihad Stadium in October.
From Kerang, McGrath is among 16 players from Victoria Country clubs in the TAC Cup to be selected.
He has spent the past two years with the AFL-AIS Academy program and is studying at Bendigo Senior Secondary College.
Injuries have forced McGrath to miss several TAC Cup matches this season.
He will be pushing for selection for this Saturday's clash with Eastern Ranges to be played at Epsom-Huntly.
