NORMAN, Okla. -- Oklahoma men's gymnastics coach Mark Williams announced the signing of Junior National Team member Hunter Justus to a letter of intent Wednesday.

Justus, who trains under OU alum Tom Meadows at Cypress Academy of Gymnastics, is a current member of the USA Junior 15-16 National Team. Justus has been on a Junior National Team each of the past five seasons dating back to 2009.

"We're very excited to have Hunter join us," Williams said. "We expect him to come in and contend while continuing the tradition of excellence here at Oklahoma."

The son of Craig and Fran, Justus recently placed first in his age group in the all-around at the P&G Championships with a score of 166.150, including a meet-high score of 84.350 on day two.

Justus added a first place finish on pommel horse with a two-day total of 28.350, a second place finish on floor (28.800) and a fourth place finish on rings (28.100).

A two-time national champion on vault in 2011 and 2012, Justus also has multiple top-five placements in the all-around and on parallel bars at other national championship meets.

At the Junior Olympic Championships, Justus took third in the all-around, pommel horse and rings in 2013. In 2012, he took third on vault and fourth in the all-around.

The Oklahoma men's gymnastics team is readying for the 2014 season by hosting its annual Crimson/Cream Scrimmage at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 24, at the Viersen Center. Admission is free.
