Schunk signed, Keel waived

The Rapids have just announced that they signed draft pick forward Ross Schunk. They also waived defender Stephen Keel. The Rapids currently have all 4 developmental spots filled by DiRaimondo, Ceus, O'Brien, and Colaluca so either Schunk was signed as a senior player or one of those 4 got an upgrade to senior status. Either way, Schunk gives us depth at forward, something we desperately need with only Cummings and Casey as signed forwards. Losing a young guy like Keel hurts a bit, but it was a battle of numbers and with Kimura, Harden, Ihemelu, and Harvey as young guys on the back line already there just wasn't room for another young defender.
