Unsigned Seniors: Janyjor Ruei from Albert Lea High School

As Minnesota's track and field season remains on hold for the time being, we're aiming to profile senior-class athletes who have yet to officially commit to a college.

Many of the state's 2020 grads were prepped and ready to display their skills in the early portion of the outdoor campaign with hopes of gaining interest from coaches at the next level. With that not being a possibility at this time, we'd like to recognize the personal best performances and career highlights of those who've submitted their information for our Minnesota Unsigned Seniors article series. 

"I believe that I can compete at the collegiate level because I still have a lot of room to grow and improve both physically and skill-wise in my events.  I just need to find the right program to help me reach my goals both athletically and academically."
