The Rhinos added a couple more young guys to the roster after GM Pat Ercoli and head coach Bob Lilley talked about potentially adding a veteran or two over the weekend.

The team announced today that they have signed 22 yo TJ Gore who played his college soccer at the University of Vermont. At 6' 180 lbs, Gore appears to add some size to the Rhinos lineup.

23 yo Max Ferdinand joins the Rhinos after stints with the Baltimore Blast of the MISL and FC Reading Revolution of the NPSL. Ferdinand was also a finalist in the Sueño MLS 2009 player search.

Ferdinand appears to be more of a speed player. So, he should fit right in with this year's Rhinos squad.
