The Revolution are adding to their roster by officially signing first round draft pick Edward Kizza. The 24th overall pick scored 31 goals in 53 appearances for Pittsburgh University. Kizza plays the number nine striker role, which adds to limited depth at the forward position. Adam Buksa holds the starting spot, while Justin Rennicks sits behind him as the true strikers on the roster.
With an increased amount of matches in a short period of time, depth will need to prove itself this season. Similar to last season, mid-week games will be placed throughout the schedule regularly.
The 22 year old hails from Uganda, meaning Kizza will take up an international spot. The Revs now hold one more international slot on the roster, indicating that they could make one last signing before the April 17th season startup.
The left winger position is a highly sought out position for the club, and many targets have been linked for the wide positions. Edward Kizza was selected to the ACC All First Team in both his sophomore and junior seasons in college. He also led Pitt in scoring in both of those years.
The SuperDraft has been a success point for the Revs, who have a back line almost entirely made up of draft picks. The Revolution continue to bolster their roster with the season just about a month away.
