Oakland Roots SC announces the signing of defender and former local college product Camden Riley ahead of the 2024 USL Championship season.
Riley was part of University of the Pacific from 2015-2018, leaving the university as the all-time leading goal scorer. The 27-year-old has played in the USL Championship for the past five seasons, most recently with San Diego Loyal.
“Camden is someone we have battled against in the past and know the qualities he possesses and how hard he is to break down,” said Head Coach Noah Delgado. “We can’t wait to have him battling for us in 2024.”
Riley got his professional start when he was selected in the 2019 MLS Superdraft by Sporting Kansas City. He would go on to play for Sporting Kansas City II 37 times between 2019 and 2020 scoring one goal for the USL Championship side. In 2021, Riley remained in the USL Championship playing for Rio Grande Valley, before ultimately joining San Diego Loyal in 2022 where he would be part of the club for two seasons, making 58 appearances.
Welcome to Oakland, Camden.
