Big one here. Barbados U20 national champion in the Long Jump and the Triple Jump (with a jump of 15.23 that set the U20 Championship Record). His jump would have come in 10th among all high schoolers last season.
Yes! this will help. 15.23 is just over 50’ so he’s already very good.
And it’s a full ride! I believe men’s T&F only gives out 12 total scholarships so that’s huge. It’s also pretty late in the year to have such a significant pick-up.
I believe this was the kid that had been hinted at by the coaches as being a huge addition.
