Adalyn Johnston grew up in eastern Wisconsin, but that doesn’t mean she was destined to stay there. During her recruitment, she considered colleges ranging from Wyoming to New York. Recently, the Bay Port H.S. golfer decided to be a Maverick when she verbally committed to the University of Nebraska Omaha.
Johnston, who finished top-20 at the WIAA State Tournament the last 2 years, debated on multiple D1 offers. Another interested school had an unexpected coaching change, putting their offer on hold. UNO was a late arrival to Johnston’s recruiting journey, but it quickly moved to the forefront.
During May, Johnston visited Omaha and met with coach Victoria Grasso. The two immediately connected. Johnston was impressed by the facilities and thought the campus was beautiful. It just felt like the perfect place to spend her college years.
“Adalyn did a wonderful job of exploring all her options,” ScoutU’s Jon Feyen said. “She talked with 20 different schools, and she even made a chart ranking her finalists on their academics, environment, golf program, etc. Her excitement level ramped up when she started talking about UNO, so I knew she finally found the perfect fit!”
Johnston earned all her interest thanks to a strong work ethic and steady improvement. After averaging 83 her freshman year, she was scoring around 76 this past season. Last summer, she won two WPGA Junior Tournaments while also shooting 77-74 at the Lawsonia Players Tour event.
This is just the beginning of the next phase of Johnston’s golf career. She’s excited for the future when she’ll have opportunities to grow, develop new relationships and become an even better athlete. Johnston said that being surrounded by great coaches and teammates will take her game to the next level.
Adalyn’s parents were extremely supportive during her college search, hoping that she’d find a great psychology major while prolonging her golf career. Now, everyone is relieved that Adalyn found her next home.
“Jon Feyen and ScoutU helped Adalyn take a holistic approach to the recruiting process, spending a lot of time understanding her options and where she would likely find the best fit,” her dad Jeromie Johnston said. “Jon was also always available to offer advice and make key connections. We would highly recommend the ScoutU team to any athlete who is serious about playing sports at the next level.”
