Yes, a lot of experience and many guys have already had a cup of tea with the USL team, have spent time with the U23s previously and some of these guys are the top academy prospects that are in contention for HGP spots.
Some notable names not with us this year (which haven't gone professional):
John Denis - played 13gms with our U23s last year. Most along with Mason Deeds and Kyle Zajec
Mason Deeds - once an up and coming defender, has declined over the past few years. Had 13 games played last year with U23s. Has played with the USL team.
Juan Seba Sanchez - a regular with the inaugural 2015 USL team as an academy loaned player. Graduated this year without an offer
Zach Knudson - Was a standout 2 years ago with White and Stroud but played only a handful of matches last year.
