Toronto FC II has signed Nyal Higgins, Antonio Carlini and Themi Antonoglou for the 2020 League One season, the club announced this week.
Higgins signs with the League One side after being selected 19th overall by Toronto FC in the 2020 MLS SuperDraft following a successful collegiate career at Oakland University and Syracuse University. The 6-2 defender played in 68 matches during his four-year career in Oakland and Upstate New York, earning several all-league accolades along the way.
Carlini and Antonoglou, both graduates of the Toronto FC Academy, have signed professional contracts with TFC II. Carlini, a 19-year-old midfielder, made his professional debut in 2019 against South Georgia Tormenta FC after joining the Academy in January of 2017.
Antonoglou joined the Toronto FC Academy in 2015 and made his professional debut for TFC II last August against the Richmond Kickers.
