MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - Middle Tennessee Golf Coach Whit Turnbow could barely contain his enthusiasm when he announced the signing of two standout recruits that will close out what he called "undoubtedly the strongest recruiting class that we have ever signed."

Turnbow announced the signing of Jordan Jennings, from Jefferson City, Tenn., and Andrew Cho, from Seoul, Korea. Both will enroll at Middle Tennessee in the fall of 2010.

Jennings is the reigning Tennessee State Junior Champion as well as the defending Tennessee State Class AAA high school champion. He also placed fifth in the AJGA Junior Championships at The Virginian course in Bristol.

"Jordan is a tough kid who is very good under pressure," said Turnbow. "He's an athlete. We can't wait to see what he can do at this level."

Cho was third in the AJGA Blue Grass Junior tournament, and second in the AJGA Deutsche Bank Junior. Cho also played in the 2009 US Amateur at Southern Hills Country Club.

"Andrew is a solid player who comes to us from the Mike Bender Golf Academy. He is as hard a worker as I've seen, and will fit in perfectly here," noted Turnbow.

Jennings and Cho join the recently-announced trio of Brett Patterson from McMinnville, Tenn., and a pair of Kentuckians, Paul Sansom of Russellville and Sammy Thompson of Paducah.

Turnbow credits the increased national exposure for his 25th ranked Blue Raiders, as well as the Jeff Hendrix Golf Performance Center at Champions Run Golf Course, for the quality and depth of this year's signing class.

"There is no question that both of those were big factors in signing a class such as this," said Turnbow.
