    UF Updated With Pilgrim:

    2023:

    Skye Blakely - 4 stars (Sloane Blakely's sister)
    Skylar Draser - 3 stars
    Anya Pilgrim - 4 stars

    21, 22, and 23 are going to be outstanding recruiting classes for UF. Jenny Rowland is clearly doing something right in a big way to attract so many outstanding gymnasts.

    College Gym News has now added Pilgrim to UF. As others said, just a few days late. Thanks to those inside who reported the commitment in real time. Anya Pilgrim looks like an outstanding add to UF gymnastics.

    It was reported here back in the summer that Olivia Greaves switched her commitment to Auburn. Suni Lee is there for 2022 and Greaves will be there in 2023.

    This is a good story on College Gym News about Olivia Greaves and her injury problems over the last 2 seasons:

    After Two Difficult Years, Olivia Greaves Finds Renewed Happiness in Elite and Auburn Gymnastics – College Gym News

    Jenny Rowland withdrew Greaves ship offer for 2023 so Greaves found a new home with Suni Lee at Auburn. She has had 2 knee surgeries and a bad elbow bruise misdiagnosed as a fracture which has forced her out of competition for 2 years. Her plans are to rejoin Elite competition before heading to Auburn in 2023.

    Olivia Greaves is Gator Bait! now, but not by her choice. I hope Greaves can get her performance career back on track without injuries. If she does, Auburn will be getting an outstanding gymnast.

    BTW, if you're a UF gymnastics fan and you're not following Sam (@DrSam_PhD) on twitter, you're missing out. She's awesome! It would be great if she could be a GatorCountry gymnastics writer.

    It would be nice to see the other 3 committed gymnasts for 2022 sign their LOIs too:

    2022:

    JaFree Scott - 5 stars
    Sophia Butler - 5 stars
    Kayla DiCello - 5 stars-----SIGNED
    Shilese Jones - 5 stars

    I think Shilese Jones has been committed to UF the longest. I'll feel better about her when she signs her LOI.

    I'm getting too old. Kaylee looks so darn young.

    Kaylee Bluffstone is a Level 10 gymnast in the 23 class and will be available for the 24 UF season. Currently, her best event is the Floor at 9.5. She has several years to mature and to improve.

    Shilese Jones says Florida is next:

    haleigh’s vault on Twitter: "And here we goooooo! @ShileseJ https://t.co/6SvM8vsBdj" / Twitter

    It doesn't say when and she hasn't signed, but this is a good tweet. Looks like Trinity Thomas in the picture with Shilese Jones. It would be quite the deal if Jones came in January instead of next summer. I'm thinking she will want to complete her US Team season, but that is just a guess.

    Credit where credit is due, I first picked this up on Dr. Sam's site and then opened in a new window so I could just link this up on Jones:
