Riley Sisson of Bozeman, Montana, also signed with the UJ men.

“We are very excited to add these fine young men and women to the University of Jamestown family,” head coach Dustin Jensen said. “Recruiting from our own backyard is extremely important, so keeping local kids in the area was a major priority with our spring recruiting class.”

“It is our feeling that these student-athletes will mesh well with our fall signees to put our program in a tremendous spot,” Jensen said. “In addition to being great students, they are great athletes with a strong passion for the game of golf. Their dedication, desire and willingness to go all in will take them to great places.”
