Sporting Sign 3rd Round Pick, James Ansu Rogers

Sporting Kansas City announced today that they had signed third round draft pick, James Ansu Rogers to a contract with the club. Ansu Rogers was selected with the 53rd pick of this year's MLS Superdraft, and becomes the fourth of Kansas City's five draft picks to sign with the club this year.

Ansu Rogers has been impressive this preseason, appearing in all four of KC's games, scoring one goal, the game winner on Saturday against Seattle, as well as providing an assist to Krisztian Nemeth in KC's 4-2 win over FC Tucson in the team's first phase of preseason.

The Sierra Leone born American has represented the United States at the U20 level in his career and has been a part of both Colorado's and Real Salt Lake's academy systems over the years. Rogers will provide Kansas City with more wide forward depth, joining the likes of Connor Hallisey and Jacob Peterson.
