“We are extremely excited to add Vedad to the MSU Soccer Family. My staff and I really enjoyed getting to know him as a player and more importantly a person. He is a good student, a humble person, and an a very good soccer player,” Rensing said.

MSU will welcome 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.

Coach Rensing on Cromer: “Vedad is a wide attacking player who is very skillful at taking players on or receiving the ball behind the defense. He can set up teammates or score himself. His ability to finish is something you cant teach as a coach.
