"We are extremely happy to have a high-level person like Jonah committing to UIW. He comes from a UIW Cardinal family who have shown him how to be a champion on and off the track. Adding him to the talented men's PV group should push that group to the top 25 in the nation. He will also add depth to our highly talented hurdle group as well," said assistant coach Blair Sohl.
