The Earthquakes bolstered their roster Tuesday by taking Oakland defender Devante Dubose and San Francisco goalkeeper Billy Knutsen on the second day of the Major League Soccer college draft.

San Jose also got midfielder A.J. Corrado, who had three goals and a team-high seven assists in 22 appearances for Indiana last season. Corrado, 22, was an All-Big Ten player the past two seasons.

The Quakes got a center back in Dubose, who made 60 appearances for Virginia Tech after playing for Bishop O'Dowd-Oakland and Danville's Mustang Academy.

Knutsen, 21, was a two-year starter at American University, recording 13 shutouts in 37 games. He also played for St. Ignatius-San Francisco.

The Vancouver Whitecaps took Mackenzie Pridham, a Cal Poly forward from Santa Cruz.

Olympics

Freeskiers Maddie Bowman of South Lake Tahoe, Brita Sigourney of Carmel, John Teller of Mammoth Lakes and David Wise of Reno officially were named to the U.S. Olympic team.

Bowman and Sigourney lead a four-woman ski halfpipe team, and Wise the men's halfpipe squad. Teller is America's sole representative in skicross.

Snowboarder Karly Shorr of Truckee was added to the U.S. slopestyle team, earning a discretionary spot after a strong performance last weekend at Mammoth Mountain.

No Northern Californians made the U.S. freestyle ski team that also was named. South Lake Tahoe's Sho Kashima just missed in moguls when Bradley Wilson of Montana scored two podium finishes in Lake Placid, N.Y., last week.
