10 Uncommitted 2019 Graduates to Keep an Eye On

With the signing period about to begin, high school seniors are committing to college at an incredible rate, but we’re still waiting to hear from plenty of talented athletes. We’re introducing you to 10 of the highest-performing uncommitted 2019 graduates, but there are plenty of college hopefuls we couldn’t get to. If you want to know more, check out our full list!

Note that only gymnasts who competed in 2018 have been included in this list. Score averages only include the past two years of results—the 2017 and 2018 seasons for most athletes, with 2016 included for athletes who had an abbreviated season later on.

Ruby Hernandez – SCEGA

Hernandez is part of a recent surge among SCEGA level 10s that has made the already strong club into one of the most exciting recruiting hotspots in the country.  She’s tidy and precise, with college lineup-worthy skills on all four events.

Level 10 Averages 9.058 9.123 9.388 9.240 36.906

Jordyn Duffield – Wildfire

Duffield is a powerhouse on vault and floor, with a massive Yurchenko full that she’s been working on upgrading. She was previously committed to Southern Utah, but seems to have withdrawn that verbal.

Level 10 Averages 9.629 8.913 9.181 9.294 37.003

Delaney Keck – Gymstars

Keck is a competitive dancer as well as a gymnast, and it shows in her performance quality on floor. That said, she has star power across all four events, particularly beam.

Level 10 Averages 9.234 9.010 9.077 9.317 36.880

Aubrey Zazula – Desert Lights

Desert Lights is an incredibly stylistically diverse gym—how can you compare MyKayla Skinner and Justine Callis, to name two—but Zazula’s precise and contained gymnastics reminds us most of Washington alumna Joslyn Goings, though her unique 10.0 vault shows her powerful side.

Level 10 Averages 9.540 8.779 9.208 9.427 36.989

Holly Hanlon – Southeastern

Hanlon is an athlete whose scores don’t seem to represent how polished she looks in action. If a college team—maybe one in her home state of North Carolina?— can touch up her consistency, she could be a huge asset.

Elizabeth Kleynerman – 10.0 Academy

Kleynerman is another gymnast whose scores are solid, but it’s routine videos that really sell her.. She’s particularly exciting on beam and floor for a future college team, and her quirky dance style will make her a favorite once she’s there.

Level 10 Averages 9.109 8.726 8.881 9.228 35.944

Kaylee Kho – Winners

Kho is the middle of three extremely successful sisters from Winners—eldest sister Caitlin is a freshman at Southern Utah, and the Thunderbirds must be eyeing the rest of the family. Kaylee is beautiful and ultra-consistent across all four events and would be a big catch for any team at this stage.

Erin Hutchison – WOGA

Hutchison is entering her sixth season as a level 10, and she does gorgeous, creative gymnastics despite a bit of inconsistency. Unsurprisingly for a WOGA gymnast, beam might be her biggest weapon in college.

Level 10 Averages 9.440 9.053 8.793 9.288 36.714

Nyah Smith – Oakland GTC

Smith has the NCAA look already—despite the occasional flicker of form, she’s powerful yet poised. She has the skill set to be usable on four events in college, including an airy Yurchenko full on vault and a great triple series on beam.

Level 10 Highs 9.675 9.450 9.575 9.600 37.875
Level 10 Averages 9.396 8.981 8.935 9.335 36.647

Joanna Chambers – Acrotex

Chambers caught our attention at JO nationals in 2018 due in equal parts to her creative gymnastics and her distinctive bangs. She has a 10.0 vault and her composition choices—like her ring jump + tuck three quarter jump dance combination on beam—set her apart.

  1. Joanna Chambers is not only an outstanding athlete, but has the highest commitment to her faith, family, friends, community, and employer. I should know, Joanna has been working for me for over three years.
    She is smart, quick witted, reliable, honest and has a work ethic that overachieves.
    Joanna Chambers would be the best asset that any college could add to their team.!

  2. Joanna Chambers- athlete extraordinaire and amazing leader to her team! She leads with passion, grace and integrity, and whoever lands this young lady will get so much more than an athlete. Go Jo!
