Union Sign Gaddis, Jordan, Witkowski, Hoppenot and Harrison

The Philadelphia Union announced today that the team has signed five players, including four rookies from the 2012 MLS SuperDraft and Supplemental Draft.

SuperDraft selections Greg Jordan and Raymon Gaddis join fellow draftee Chandler Hoffman as members of the Union, while Krystian Witkowski and Antoine Hoppenot are the only two Supplemental Draft picks from any season under contract for Philadelphia.

Jordan provides depth at center midfield and is thought to be a possible option as center back depth. Gaddis is a highly talented right back, with a lot of speed, who was bothered by injuries during his senior year at West Virginia University.

Hoppenot had good final season in NCAA play, but failed to make enough of an impression to warrant a SuperDraft pick. Witkowski most likely caught the eye of Union head coach Piotr Nowak from his time with the under-18 Polish national team.

Philadelphia also brought back goalkeeper Chase Harrison, who was originally acquired late in the 2011 MLS season as an emergency goalkeeper pool player. Harrison is one of two goalkeepers on the Union's roster, with Zac MacMath the projected 2012 starter.
