FORT COLLINS, Colo.- Colorado State men’s golf head coach Jamie Bermel announced the signing of three golfers to National Letters of Intent on Thursday, the second day of the NCAA fall early signing period. Jesper Jurell, Brett Wilson and Dominic Kieffer will join the CSU squad in 2012-13.
“I believe we have put a together pretty solid recruiting class for 2012,” said Bermel. “Overall I am very pleased with this class. All three kids are very excited to join the CSU Ram golf family and I am extremely happy to sign them. I can’t wait to get them on campus next August.”
Jurell, who hails from Sollentuna, Sweden, will look to continue a tradition of outstanding international golfers at CSU that includes former Ram and current PGA tour player Martin Laird who came to CSU from his native Scotland.
“I did some international recruiting with Jesper and I believe he can really help us in the near future,” added Bermel. “He is 20 years old, so he is more experienced and more mature than most incoming freshmen.”
Kieffer will join the Rams from Bryon, Minn. He made the Minnesota Coaches’ Association All-State team, was put on the Minnesota Golf Association’s all-state first team and has a league championship under his belt. In the summer season’s U.S. Boys Junior Championship he missed the match-play portion by 1 stroke. In his AJGA’s performances, he placed fourth in the Duncan McMillan Classic and won the Nebraska Junior by firing a 66 in the final round. He is currently ranked 81st by the National Junior Golf Scoreboard.
“Dominic had a breakout summer,” said Bermel. “He won the AJGA event and I really believe that his best golf is still in front of him. He is a very good student and will be a great asset to the team.”
Wilson, who will come to CSU from Mesa, Ariz., is a member of the Junior Golf Association of Arizona Cactus Cup team which is comprised the top 10 male and female juniors in the state. He has competed at Red Mountain High School, helping the team to a 2010 Class 5A Division 1 state championship. Wilson finished seventh in the state tournament. In addition, Wilson was a member of the 2010 and 2011 Arizona Ping Junior State Interclub Champions team. He is ranked 140th by the National Junior Golf Scoreboard.
“Brett has also had a very solid summer,” added Bermel. “I think he will have a fine career at CSU and will really help our team improve.”
