Option declined following 2016 season.
PRONUNCIATION: FAN – well
An athletic center back, Kavita is a bit raw, but will likely be a part of the Claret-and-Cobalt’s defensive rotation in 2016. He spent much of his rookie year of 2015 playing with RSL’s USL affiliate Real Monarchs SLC, and should get a good chunk of playing time with the lower-division side in 2016, too.
COLLEGE: A four-year starter at Clemson from 2011-2014, Kavita appeared in 81 matches for the Tigers. He led Clemson to the ACC championship as a senior captain in 2014, earning All-ACC tournament and second-team All-ACC honors.
NOTES: Lived in the Democratic Republic of the Congo until he was eight, when he and his family moved to the US and settled in Salt Lake City.
