re: LSU Gymnastics Recruiting Thread
I will have some more thoughts on next season later - but my absolute number 1 thing is to get most of the covid seniors out of the balance beam lineup. Beam has been our absolute weakest event for the last two seasons - if we keep them in there for the whole season, then not only is it likely they will continue to underperform, we won’t give any of our underclassmen (or juniors) an opportunity to get experience.

I know people think I am too harsh on the covid senior group but my thoughts are that Edwards should only do vault and be used as a backup on floor; Durante should only do bars; desiderio should only do beam, but trade off the lead spot with whoever is the future of that spot; dean has shown the most consistency on beam and so I would be ok with her being a rock for us again, and Campbell, as beautiful as she is, should only do beam if her body can handle it and she can mentally perform in meets.

Guess it’s a 1 in 3 chance it’s either LSU Clemson or Washington

What do you guys think the chances of us seeing a 100% healthy Kai this season?

I am trying to be optimistic that she is over the injury hurdle but the poor girl has been dealing with it for years. Hopefully they can manage her body well enough to have her consistently competing on her better events. I would like her in the floor lineup this year.

With the mini-UCLA that Jordyn Wieber is creating at Arkansas (see announcement about Kyla Ross as volunteer coach), the entire national team heading to Florida, and Suni at Auburn, I hope that Jay has some tricks up his sleeve to get a more consistent team, or the next few years have the potential to be pretty ugly for us.

Uh oh did you all see Aleah’s Instagram story? Poor girl :/
Anyone know why she wouldn’t have had the surgery earlier in the summer to give her more time to recover? Now who knows if she’ll be able to compete this year, depending on which surgery she’s having and the recovery time.

She’s not considering Washington at all. When she went live a while ago and listed her top schools, Washington wasn’t on it.

As for Clemson, she said it all depends on who their coaching staff is as to whether or not she’d be interested in going there.

Her sister and a few others on the live who seem to know Konnor pretty well all confirmed that her cryptic tweet had nothing to do with college gymnastics and was more of a reference to her getting to meet a sports hero of hers yesterday.

I also remember on her live that one time that Alyona joined, she seemed to speak very highly of Jay and was even trying to get Alyona to help her convince Ciena Alipio to come to LSU instead of UCLA. Yes these don’t 100% confirm that she’s LSU Bound but she’s visiting this fall as well with Alyona most likely being her host so I’m more optimistic about her coming here than somewhere like Washington or Clemson

I heard some things but she has said she wants to go on visits before committing although has said she will when the time is right. Alyona was a silent for months before officially announcing

Kailin Chio (2024 recruit and national team member) mentions LSU, UCLA and Cal are at the top of her list as of now

Gymnastics board starting to look like the football board. LOL.

Is Suni going to attract a top 3 class to Auburn with her? Its a fluke she is there.

Are a large contingent of recruits going to choose Arkansas over the traditional powers which now includes LSU?

It doesn't seem to matter how many elites land in Florida Cinderella turns into a pumpkin when the clock strikes post season. One of these seasons everything will line up right for LSU and they will win that elusive championship and will embark on a decade resembling Bertman and baseball. They have been close. Ever so close. Time to kick that door in.

Auburn fan here. Olivia Greaves is currently committed to AU and it looks like Konnor is seriously considering Auburn. Graba recently mentioned that some high profile recruits are now interested in Auburn because of Suni. Of course, he didn’t mention any names.

I think my first post on this was lost in all the discussion about Arkhansas and auburn but wanted to point out Aleah had Foot surgery yesterday. Wishing her the best. Would be a huge bummer if she can’t make it back for season or is limited to just bars.

I believe it was a small clean up, nothing major. Should be good to go for this season.

That seemed to be my understanding of it too. Plus with the 4 that we have and the way they handled Alyona, Kai, McKenna and Gunter’s achilles injuries, I doubt they’ll rush her back into the all around for the first meet if she isn’t ready for it but pace her to be able to do all 4 by post season. Especially since she is coming off of an elite career

Side note: Konnor just went live on Instagram. Basically announced she’s going to be announcing her college decision tomorrow. Annie, Haleigh, Alyona and Aleah through the live and on twitter have basically all confirmed she’s coming to LSU

Told y’all to keep watching I know she wanted to go on her visits but she has been close to pulling the trigger on committing for a bit.

She is enjoying trolling the gymternet
