OXFORD, Miss. - Junior golf standout Josh Seiple, of Castle Rock, Colo., signed a national letter of intent to join the Ole Miss men's golf team for the 2014-15 academic year, head coach Ernest Ross announced Wednesday.
A star at Valor Christian High School, Seiple finished 22nd out of 156 golfers at the 2013 USGA Junior Amateur Golf Championships in Truckee, Calif. He also qualified for the USGA Junior Amateur Golf Championships in both his sophomore and junior seasons. As a sophomore, he claimed the 2012 AJGA Aspen Junior Golf Classic title.
"We are thrilled to have Josh Seiple join the Ole Miss Rebel Golf program for next year," Ross said. "We signed a great player and even better person. Josh has wonderful success traits in all walks of life. He is an accomplished player with excellent length off the tee, sound swing fundamentals, and a tremendous upside. I feel that he will contribute immediately to our program. Josh has a wonderful and supportive family, and that is a huge plus."
Seiple is ranked the No. 1 player Colorado, and he has ranked as high as No. 48 in the United States by Junior Golf Scoreboard.
