Florida inks Randy Stageberg

Many thought Shayla Worley, a Florida native, would be inclined to pick the University of Florida for her NCAA career. Nope, she went for Georgia.

Florida doesn’t seem too down, though — after all, it got Randy Stageberg to sign a letter of intent today.

Coach Rhonda Faehn on Stageberg:

“Randy is a tremendous athlete and person. She is the perfect all-around package and is known for her power and charismatic style. Randy has a wonderful talent for making the difficult skills she performs look easy. She’s been a Senior National team member on the elite circuit for many years so she is comfortable and familiar with competing under high pressure situations. She will make an immediate impact on all four events as a Gator.”

Stageberg may not be done on the international stage, either — according to Florida’s website, she is headed to Houston for a Karolyi camp.

Future NCAA floor champion? It could happen.

    Florida shouldnt be down about not inking Worley, if she continues elite under Jeff Woods this season she’s gonna be moving mats for Georgia by her Junior year.Georgia does have a good class for next year though, i wish Worley would leave elite alone and let her back rest.
    Good for Stageberg going with UF
