Why Blake Smith wasn't at the draft

I do wanna know why he's not there at the draft.
The MLS only took 14 players to the draft for whatever reason. Only the Generation Adidas players and the players who had signed senior contracts were given tickets to the draft. Blake was told that he was going to receive a senior contract while at the MLS combine, but it was never given to him. With that said, by the time he realized he was not being given a ticket to the draft, it was too expensive to fly so he chose to stay home with his friends and family to celebrate. I have no idea why the MLS is so cheap that they would only pay for 14 players to be at their draft. Other players paid their own way, but what a joke!
