COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Head coach Brett Nelligan of the Maryland gymnastics team announced this week the commitments of four future Terrapin gymnasts to attend the University of Maryland next fall.

“We are thrilled to be able to finally announce the additions of Morgan, Emma, Deanna and Jen to our incoming freshman class," said Nelligan. "These 4 young women have what it takes to be great Terps both in the gym and in the classroom. We’re excited and I know they are too."
