The New England Revolution have signed midfielder Michael Gamble, according to his former teammate Jack Harrison. The team has not yet confirmed the signing or issued a press release.
Gamble was drafted 30th overall in the 2016 SuperDraft after four successful years at Wake Forest. While in college, he amassed 24 goals and 20 assists in 60 appearances. His talents earned him NSCAA Second Team All-South Region honors in 2014 and 2015.
Originally a forward, Gamble has played primarily as a winger with the Revolution. The 22-year-old shined during the Desert Diamond Cup, scoring against Real Salt Lake in the tournament opener and collecting a secondary assist against the Houston Dynamo. Gamble came on as a late substitute in the Cup Final.
The addition of Gamble, if true, means that that the Revs have filled 22-of-28 roster slots. If he stays in Foxboro, Gamble will compete with the likes of Diego Fagundez, Teal Bunbury, Kelyn Rowe, and Juan Agudelo. Another option is to send Gamble to Rochester to play with the Rhinos.
The Revolution open the 2016 MLS campaign on Sunday, Mar. 6 when they face the Houston Dynamo. Kickoff is set for 3 PM EST.
