Stanford bolsters 2024 men’s soccer signing class with grad transfers and walk-ons

STANFORD, Calif. – Stanford University’s Knowles Family Director of Men’s Soccer Jeremy Gunn announced four more signees to join the team for the 2024 fall season.

The additions include a pair of graduate transfers and a pair of walk-ons.

Louis Sterobo (Odense, Denmark), Nik White (Port Moody, British Columbia), Laszlo Bollyky (Stanford, Calif.) and Trevor Islam (Mill Valley, Calif.) are set to join the squad.

“We are very excited to announce the incoming group for the 2024 season,” said Gunn. “They will join a squad that returns nine of 10 starting players from a very dynamic team that finished the 2023 campaign on the road in the Elite Eight, falling to the eventual national champions, Clemson. We feel that our incoming class will create fierce competition for places internally and blend with our ever maturing group. As always, we believe in the long term development of our newcomers and hope that they can continue to raise the level of excellence that our program expects. Overall, we are very excited about the 2024 season and cannot wait to get started!”
