TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – Alabama inked three gymnasts for next year’s freshman class, the Crimson Tide head coach Ashley Johnston announced Wednesday.

The standout trio of Chloe LaCoursiere, Gabby Ladanyi and Jamison Sears will join the Crimson Tide next fall.

“We are very pleased that this outstanding class is coming to Alabama. Chloe, Gabby and Jamison are all great gymnasts and dedicated students, but most of all they are all exceptional people. We look forward to continuing to build on the relationships that began during this time, the recruitment process and we know they will all make a positive impact in the gym but also as members of our Crimson Tide gym family.”
