Big recruiting update!

Suni spent the weekend in Auburn - recruiting!

Highly ranked 4-star elite gymnast - Addison Fatta was on an OV to Auburn.

She is a highly ranked gymnast (2023 recruiting class), also being recruited by Oklahoma and Florida, possibly LSU.

UPDATE

A.Fatta is now committed to Oklahoma.

Still great to see that Suni is recruiting these top elite gymnasts.

College Gymnastics is really becoming a thing: Packed arenas in the SEC and PAC12, tons of Olympians/World Champions/Elites flocking to college. First time in history that the AA Olympic gold medalist competes in college.  Schools such as Utah and LSU investing heavily in facilities, Clemson starting a new program from scratch. 

Now, ABC broadcasting a regular season meet for the first time...

Anyone get an update on Greaves injury?

I know she signed but after she withdrew from the last meet due to some injury to her knee, I haven't heard anything new. She has had chronic knee problems for too long now. I worry how effective she will be when she can train at Auburn again....

Are there any more big time gymnasts we are currently in on?

Hard to tell…this is a young team and we do not have many scholarships available + we are late to the party (it basically started when Suni arrived).
 

Now, Suni and Olivia will have to start recruiting the next generation. This is not easy because we only have two major elites while LSU and Florida have a lot more highly ranked & well-connected gymnasts. Most of the top SEC programs, Alabama, Florida, and LSU just keep signing 4-stars and 5-stars because of the long-lasting relationships with the top recruits.

Florida is totally stacked and two or three 4-star and 5-star L10s haven’t signed with the Gators yet (e.g. 5-star Sophia Butler but her IG still says Florida Gator commit). Maybe we can pick up someone here depending on the scholarship situation. 
 

Other interesting names:

2022

4-star Arielle Ward attended camp at Auburn in the past

2023

4-star Lyden Saltness (committed)

4-star Julianne Huff (AL, followed by Auburn Gymnastics, not sure why this is the case because the AU account normally only follows AU gymnasts and committed gymnasts) - I think she is L10 now but previously competed at elite level (only AL based gymnast during this time period).

2024

unrated (potential 5-star) / Jr. Team USA member - Charlotte Booth (follows and regularly interacts with a number of Auburn Gymnasts via social media)

Minnesota's Suni Lee seeking balance after her life flipped in one golden year

 

https://www.wctrib.com/sports/7332725-Minnesotas-Suni-Lee-seeking-balance-after-her-life-flipped-in-one-golden-year#.YcpVQjr5fi4.reddit

 

A year ago, Lee led a typical teenage existence, save for the 40-plus hours she spent in the gym every week. She was a senior at South St. Paul High School, living in a quiet East Side neighborhood. A family reunion qualified as a big social event. Now, she's a super star.

FULL STORY: https://www.wctrib.com/sports/7332725-Minnesotas-Suni-Lee-seeking-balance-after-her-life-flipped-in-one-golden-year#.YcpVQjr5fi4.reddit

[...]

Suni's NIL deals:

"The Olympics vaulted her into an entirely new sphere. Lee now has a management group — "Team Suni" at Boston-based Smith & Saint — handling her business interests, and the agency pairs with Auburn to field a flood of requests for interviews and public appearances. Agent Britt St. George said Lee has deals with Amazon, Facebook, Free People clothing, GK Elite leotards and the electric vehicle maker VinFast, with more to come in 2022."

Upcoming season:

"Lee's star power created a run on tickets, with all of Auburn's home meets selling out within four days. A meet at Arkansas was moved to a larger venue to allow more people to see her.

That last statement is impressive.
