In his college career, he won seven times in 2018, Team National Championship 2017, Individual National Champion 2018, and lowest adjusted scoring average of 69.

Knick continued, "John is an extraordinary athlete, and it has been an honor to coach him over the last ten years. We are looking forward to partnering with John to help him on the next part of his journey, and to see John take his career to the next level."
