Liberty Track & Field Head Coach Brant Tolsma announced that javelin thrower Denzel Pratt has signed to attend Liberty University, beginning in January.

Pratt, who boasts a javelin personal best of 220-7, will be eligible to join the Flames' roster this spring. The Bahamas native will give Liberty its third 200-foot javelin thrower on this year's roster, along with redshirt senior Steve Feister (225-11) and junior decathlete Zach Davis (202-2).

"Denzel Pratt will be joining an already strong 2016 men's recruiting class," stated Tolsma. "Along with Steve Feister, he should give Liberty one of the best javelin duos in the NCAA. Denzel should strengthen Coach Henderson's already unmatched Flame Throwers, who appear poised to dominate the Big South Conference and impact the national scene."
