Rudy signed with the Revolution on Feb. 28, 2015 after a success trial. Prior to joining the Revs, Rudy played four years at Georgetown University, where he offered seven goals and 12 assists in 88 appearances.
Rudy spent the bulk of 2015 with the Rochester Rhinos. The midfielder performed well while on loan, eventually earning a start in the Revolution's US Open Cup game against the Charlotte Independence (USL).
Unfortunately for Rudy, his rookie campaign was cut short due to an aggravated superior retinaculum injury. The ailment require surgery, sidelining him for the rest of the USL and MLS seasons. Rudy has since fully healed and is looking to prove it on the soccer field.
The Revs currently have 19 of 28 roster slots filled. The club opens preseason on Friday, Jan 22.
