Uncommitted Recruits to Watch

Commitments on Signing Day are one of the most exciting parts of the Signing period starting next week. All eyes will naturally be on Leanne Wong, but you don’t want to miss out on other talented gymnasts who are still looking for a college to call home. These include two Canadian elites and some very interesting level 10 athletes.

Leanne Wong

The 2019 American Cup champion needs no introduction. She is CGN’s top-rated gymnast and has 10.0 potential on all apparatuses. She will be a star anywhere she goes. We can’t wait to find out!

Emma Spence

The Canadian has the potential to become a strong collegiate athlete. Her bar and floor work stands out in particular, but she can also perform a Yurchenko 1.5 on vault. It is not the cleanest, but there are a lot of teams that would be delighted to have it.

Quinn Skrupa

CGN Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Skrupa, another Canadian, will stand out especially on beam and floor in college. Any team in need of a strong floor worker should try and recruit her—she can open her routine with either a double Arabian or a full-in.

Our Best Guess: Nebraska, Central Michigan

Liberty Grace Mora

CGN Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Mora is another gymnast who really stands out on beam. Her form is fantastic, and when she hits, she is almost as good as the Kyla Rosses of the world. Her floor work is also steady, and her Yurchenko half could make some coaches happy if she can clean up her landings a little bit.

Our Best Guess: Towson

Maya Davis

2019 was Davis’ first year as a level 10, but she is already performing like a pro. She has exceptional form, especially on bars and beam, and could contend for lineup spots for the top teams in the country. The amplitude on her leaps on beam is fantastic.

Jordan Levi

CGN Rating: Not Rated

Amplitude is the word to describe Levi’s gymnastics. All her movements are beautifully extended, and she can also perform some difficult skills as well. In 2018 she competed both a Yurchenko 1.5 on vault and a double layout on floor. Since then, she has had surgery, but her Yurchenko full from earlier this year has never looked better. 

Our Best Guess: Yale, N.C. State

Madeline Pike

CGN Rating: Not Rated
Videos: VT | UB | BB | FX

Pike could become a good all around contributor in college. She does not have a weak event, and she keeps improving as time goes on: Her bar work in particular is scoring significantly higher this year than in the past. 

Our Best Guess: Towson, Arizona State

Autumn Lull

Lull stands out on bars and beam, where she has very clean form and steady moves. During her junior years she also trained elite, and that shows still in the beauty of some of her skills.

Our Best Guess: Illinois, Minnesota

Elise Tisler

CGN Rating: Not Rated
Videos: VT | UB | BB | FX

Tisler is a powerful gymnast with a solid Yurchenko full and a lot of amplitude on floor. She also has a unique acrobatic series on beam: a side aerial to roundoff. 

Our Best Guess: Illinois State

Alana Laster

CGN Rating: Not Rated
Videos: VT | UB | BB | FX

Laster is an elegant gymnast. She is not always super clean, but she has the potential to become so. Her Yurchenko full on vault is very good, and her bar work has some exquisite touches: Her piked Jaeger is big and her double front dismount is difficult.

Our Best Guess: SEMO

Anna Leigh

CGN Rating: Not Rated
Videos: VT | UB | BB | FX

Leigh has the potential to become an excellent NCAA gymnast. She has minor execution issues here and there, but her form is overall very good across the board. Her floor routine is particularly impressive, as she opens with a super difficult Randi—a front 2.5 twist. Watch out!

Our Best Guess: Air Force, Central Michigan
