“We are extremely excited about the 2024 class,” Kortan said. “We are fortunate to be able to recruit some of the very best high school golfers from around the world. Wheaton and Alex are certainly in that mold. Not only are they highly ranked, but they are proven winners and show a tremendous desire to be great both on and off the course. Alex and Wheaton are extremely talented, competitive and will bring a strong work ethic to Aggie Golf in the fall of ’24. They will add to an already competitive group and push to be a consistent presence in the lineup.”
