Kai Kovar was the placeholder on the ISU site and Eric Prober is the placeholder on the USFS siteHappy for Jacob! Yesterday I noticed Kai Kovar was listed as the placeholder in #6 Gdansk instead of Prober on the ISU site. USFS now has Eric listed as "withdrawn 9/15" from JGP #4 in Russia on their International Assignments page. It's very unfortunate he couldn't make his JGP debut there since he will be 19 in December and this is his final season of ISU Junior eligibility (heard Prober arrived in Krasnoyarsk but something happened -- injury? -- and he WD before the SP draw so is not listed in the results).
Definitely sad for Prober that he couldn't compete on the JGP. Hopefully he'll be able to get a later junior international this fall, like Golden Spin of Zagreb.
