Sporting Kansas City has added forward Cameron Iwasa on a one-year contract with options for 2018, 2019 and 2020. Iwasa, 23, helped lead Sacramento Republic FC to the top of the USL Western Conference standings in 2016 with 12 goals and 3 assists.

"Cameron is a player we saw at the MLS Combine in 2015 and who we followed closely during his time at Sacramento," said Sporting KC Director of Player Personnel Brian Bliss via press release. "We think that he is a player with a high upside who can contribute at multiple positions in the attack."

Iwasa was drafted by Montreal with the third pick (65th overall) of the 4th round of the 2015 MLS SuperDraft. He did not sign with the Impact but instead ended up with his hometown Sacramento Republic in the USL.

His first season with Sacramento Iwasa made 17 appearances with just 1 goal and 1 assist. His second season he adjusted to life as a pro, appearing in all 30 regular season matches in route to his scoring his 12 goals.

Iwasa can play both wide and centrally so can fill multiple spots if needed.

He can evidently shoot from well outside the box...

Another one of his goals...
