In this interview with the Ave Herald, Klopas reports that there are 36 players in camp, but the team is expecting about 40. "We still have some signings to complete, and some players are still waiting for visas," he told the Herald.
Even though the Fire's various off-season moves have generally been well-received by fans, the potential of more new faces will be welcome news to those who feel the team still lacks a few key pieces -- like a proven striker.
[Editor's note]: HTIOT has received confirmation that one of the trialists down in Florida is Jon Okafor. Okafor was drafted No. 40 in the 2011 MLS SuperDraft after attending Brown University. After failing to latch on with Chivas USA, he was over in Europe trying to pick up a deal. The 6'1 product from New Jersey would likely have to be a fullback conversion experiment to have a hope of making the squad.
