On a day when Oklahoma City Energy FC is preparing for its first ever match in the United Soccer League’s Pro division, the team announced it has added midfielder Abraham Villon.

Energy FC’s coach Jimmy Nielsen said after practice earlier this week that OKC was trying to add a few more players to its roster. The team began the season with 20 players.

Villon, a Garden Grove, Calif. native finished his collegiate career at San Diego State last fall. He started 14 games for the Aztecs last year, scoring six goals and recording seven assists.

The 24-year old has been part of the United States Men’s National Team in their Under-15, Under-16, Under-17 and Under-18 teams. Villon also played in the Premier Development League with the Thunder Bay Chill.

Assistant coach Chris Spendlove said in a statement he expects Villon to contribute to the team right away.

Oklahoma City Energy FC is in California for a match with the Orange County Blues Saturday night at 9 p.m. On Monday, they take on the L.A. Galaxy II.
