Voter Insight:
Q: What should we expect from Nationals Weekend?
Grant Johnson (Maryland)
A: -Bringing a smaller lineup of 6 guys but surely some fire power. Led by rookie Joey
Difrancesco, Terps have a solid core of guys who have the potential to take it deep. Notable storyline:
Former NCCGA President Grant Johnson making his 19th and final NCCGA start and his 5th nationals
appearance. R1 pairing with former SL Adam Gracik from Depaul.
Luke Stull (Mighigan)
A: Look out for MSU, sneaky good. Wisconsin is relentless (played outside their own region just for the
love of the game), dedication is huge. Watch for Judson Bro of Bradley to win the NIT, he's capping off
a HOF career out there. Michigan is ranked fifth in the country right now despite only having five total
golfable days this semester so far. Not to mention, we usually finish 5-10 spots ahead of our ranking at
nationals. Expect Providence to shoot somewhere around 425 both days.
