Huskers Sign Three Top Recruits for 2011 Class
Lincoln- Head Coach Chuck Chmelka announced Wednesday that the Nebraska men’s gymnastics team has signed three new talented recruits for the 2011-2012 season.
Included in the class is Josh Ungar, a native of Longmeadow, Massachusetts, who is currently ranked No. 13 nationally among all-arounders in the 16-18-year old age bracket. He trains at Tim Daggett Gold Medal Gymnastics facility.
Grant Perdue, a Missouri City, Texas native, will join the Husker squad next year looking to contribute in all six events. Another all-arounder, Perdue earned a 77.650 at the 2010 VISA Championships, placing him in the top 15 at the elite tournament. Grant will graduate from Lawrence E. Elkins High School in Missouri City, Texas this spring.
Rounding out this exceptional recruiting class is all-arounder Gabriel Jolley. Jolley hails from American Forks, Utah and is also expected to make a significant impact next year when he joins the Huskers.
“We are very excited to get three student-athletes of this caliber,” Chmelka said. “They will help our team on all six events but they are excellent students as well.”
With the departure of four seniors after this season, these three future Huskers will assist in the transition to the 2011-12 season.
