Michigan State men’s soccer adds Louis Sala as transfer from Northern Illinois

EAST LANSING, Mich. – Michigan State head men’s soccer coach Damon Rensing announced on Friday the addition of junior midfielder Louis Sala to the 2020 roster.

Sala, a native of West Bloomfield, Michigan, comes to MSU after playing two seasons at Northern Illinois. Last season, he played in 18 games for the Huskies, starting nine. He scored two goals, while adding one assist. For his NIU career, he played in36 games, starting 16.

“We are really happy and excited to bring Louis Sala on board here at Michigan State. Louis played two years at Northern Illinois University where he contributed in various positions,” Rensing said. “Louis has a very good soccer IQ, is very fit, and is comfortable on the ball. Although he is a versatile player, his best soccer is in the middle of the park. He comes from the state of Michigan so he knows a lot of our guys. It should be a smooth transition. In short, Louis is a great addition to the MSU soccer family!”

Sala joins five freshman as part of the 2020 class. MSU also adds freshmen Jacob Cromer (Northville, Michigan), Chase Inscho (Rochester, Michigan), Greyson Mercer (Heber City, Utah), Kadin Shaban (Hudsonville, Michigan) and Jack Zugay (Ann Arbor, Michigan) to the 2020 roster.
