BARBOURVILLE, Ky. - Union College head men's golf coach Tony Carruba has announced yet another addition to his 2014 recruiting class, as Erik Hermansson has signed his National Letter of Intent, and plans to join the Bulldog program in time for the Fall Semester.
Hermansson, a native of Gothenburg, Sweden, placed first in National Team Match Play in his homeland in 2013, and was first in the Skandia Tour Regional held in Torslanda, Sweden in 2012. He also finished fifth in the Skandia Tour Riks in Sotenäs, Sweden, as well. Hermansson will join the Union program off a prep career at Katrinelundsgymnasiet in his home country.
"I'm very pleased to announce the addition of Erik to our team," said Carruba. "Erik has years of competitive junior experience, and I think his transition to the college game will be very smooth. Erik will also be a great representative for us because of his ability in the classroom. I look for him to make an impact right away."
Hermansson is the son of Jonas Hermansson and Linda Sandstedt. He plans to major in Business at Union College.
