I had not seen anywhere that Usfsa had assigned competitors for the JGP?
But it is not the first instance -- in my experience -- that an individual competitor has referred to a specific JGP before any official announcement.
In those cases, my assumption has been that Skater X's federation has let it be known unofficially to X that it will be sending X to JGP Y. [Presumably with the hope that the early knowledge will help Team X tailor X's training so that s/he will be in absolutely peak condition at the time of Y. And perhaps the early notice would affect which summer comp(s) the skater enters??]
Just my assumption.
