re: LSU Gymnastics Recruiting Thread - lsugymfann
They had two (not counting a straddle quarter). One of theirs was a switch half into a split jump and the other was a standing split jump into a straddle half. We had Kiya, Christina and Reagan doing rotating leaps. Haleigh and Sami both do a switch leap to straddle quarter. In addition to that we h...

re: LSU Gymnastics Recruiting Thread - lsugymfann
I expect Finnegan to do the 1.5 rather than a double full but she gets so much power on the double that if she can’t control the blind landing, she may decide to go back up to the double twist. In which case, our lineup could have HB’s front pike half, 3 DTY’s and two 1.5s which is absolutely INSANE...

re: LSU Gymnastics Recruiting Thread - lsugymfann
Kaytlyn competed a double twist until recently. If she’s fully healthy, I think she might prefer to do the harder vault, especially if it’s more consistent for her and if it means she sees the lineups more often than she would if she did a full. If Bob and Jay are smart about next year and learned a...

[quote]That being said D’antonio is the only true senior next year so this could be really good from a leadership perspective as long as we see lineups improve.[/quote] Speaking of her being the only senior, I hope that Jay gives her the opportunity to compete beam at least once this season, even...

re: LSU Gymnastics Recruiting Thread - lsugymfann
She got covid on the fall and spent the entire year recovery from an ankle injury that happened in mid/the beginning of January. After that, Jay probably wanted to protect her injury and make sure she just stayed solid on the one event so she could continue to improve, be consistent and contribute w...

[quote]there were seven including gracen[/quote] According to ncaa eligibility rules, gracen doesn’t not count towards our senior count and we only have six seniors since she is not on the roster and has not been since her freshman year. Only those on the roster count towards the team with regard...

[quote]My guess is that it’s Gunter who is the one of the six not coming back (and Gracen, since Caitlin is taking her manager spot). I honestly don’t see a place for Reagan if she is still injury-plagued as she was this year. Desiderio should only be on beam[/quote] Not sure if you have instagra...

re: LSU Gymnastics Recruiting Thread - lsugymfann
Greaves has cleaner form and difficulty which will score higher if/when she hits, while Smith already has scores against the JO Code of Points so we know roughly already how she’ll score in college, despite having lower difficulty. Given the coaching patterns and philosophy of LSU, I think I’d rathe...

re: LSU Gymnastics Recruiting Thread - lsugymfann
Adding onto this, i spoke to her and her mom after her sophomore year and they both said her scoliosis repair surgery was already scheduled for after her senior year. Even with covid allowing her to have the extra year, I know she’s not planning on taking it since it takes a while to get those appoi...

re: LSU Gymnastics Recruiting Thread - lsugymfann
I know Sarah has another year of school before she officially graduates so her coming back depends on how her body is feeling, though she made it this year with only one score under 9.8 (SEC Champs on floor due to an out of bounds) and hit every single vault for us this year, so she may have some in...

re: LSU Gymnastics Recruiting Thread - lsugymfann
She follows their instagram account. Given her history of injuries and the fact that she committed to Florida while with MH, it’s not surprising that this change was made. Just based on who she’s closest with on the National Team, I’m guessing she may want to stay in the SEC which means she’ll eithe...

re: LSU Gymnastics Recruiting Thread - lsugymfann
Ryan is the most likely of the rising juniors to get a scholarship. If Rau were to get one, my guess is that it wouldn’t be until senior year if at all. Yes Ryan only made one competitive lineup this year and struggled but every exhibition vault we saw from her was spot on, and she’s likely to make ...

[quote]Water down Kiyas beam routine, Get rid of switch half in particular[/quote] Honestly confuses the hell out of me why the LSU beam coach who never competed a switch half in her beam routine ever at LSU has so many girls doing that leap instead of a straddle quarter, straddle jump, or simple...

As she should. Gymcastic misspelled her name twice on their feed, yet they claim to be the number one gymnastics podcast out there. Once: chalk it up to human error. But twice? Glad she corrected them...

[quote]Despite the issues on bars, I think we will get better with this incoming freshmen class and adding Kai back to the mix. Bryant can add at least .05 to her bars adding the half twist to the dismount. [/quote] Dismounts, handstands, and pointed feet need to be our priority on bars over the ...
