The Rhinos have signed midfielder/defender Kwame Sarkodie to a one year deal.
Sarkodie played his college soccer at the University of Cincinnati.
He made his pro debut last season with the Cleveland City Stars of the USL 2nd Division.
After the USL 2nd Division season ended, Sarkodie was signed by the Colorado Rapids and saw time with their reserve team.
Sarkodie was in Rapids camp this off season before being waived on March 2nd.
Sarkodie has been in camp for the past few weeks and according to Rhinos defender John Ball, he is very athletic, which goes along with this 2007 combine report.
The Rhinos definitely needed depth on the outside and it will be interesting to see if he can play on the left side.
