Underrated Recruits in the Class of 2023 That Excel on Vault

Our second round of ratings was released a couple weeks ago with 19 5-star gymnasts in the class of 22 and 13 in the class of 23, as well as 231 total rated gymnasts. If you haven’t had a chance to check it out, head on over to the landing page for a look.

However, because our rating system was based on scores and video review for all four events, gymnasts with only one standout apparatus were often rated lower overall. Of course, teams that are weaker on one event or those that are looking to fill a hole will turn to event specialists to solidify those lineups. Recruits who excel on a single event may not have ratings that reflect how valuable they can be to their teams, so we wanted to highlight them here.

Let’s take a look here at underrated vaulters in the class of 2023.

Victoria Cluck

CGN Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Vault high scores: 9.900 (2021); 9.450 (2020)

Cluck upgraded her Yurchenko full to a Yurchenko 1.5 this year. It still has some minor form issues in the air and on landing, but it will get better and better as time goes on.
