Camron Amine chooses U of M

Ann Arbor is getting another Amine!  Camron's family has a long legacy at the University of Michigan as his father, brother, uncle and two cousins all competed for the Wolverines of the years.  

The decision was not easy as Camron narrowed his many options to either Oklahoma State or U of M.  One of the major factors in his choice was the hiring of Sergei Belaglozov to the Cliff Keen staff.  Camron felt comfortable with both Beleaglozov and Sean Bormet as head coaches for Cliff Keen and U of M to help in in both his Freestyle and Folkstyle goals.

Congrats to Camron and U of M on a great land!!!
