Re: College Tennis Official Thread

Also Blake Strobe of Arkansas who made the NCAA individual semifinals.

I am a little concerned with Clemson's recruiting class. We got 5 star Zach Rigsby and 2 unranked international players. I get worried when I see teams like Virginia and Wake Forest getting Blue chip recruits. Even Maryland, whose tennis program is historically one of the worst in the ACC, has a better class.

Re: College Tennis Official Thread

Hello everyone! This is Mark typing.
I hope it`s an appropriate thread.
If you haven`t followed my thread (DartMarcus Cheering thread) you can have a look at it now.
I am interesting in going to the USA next year to study and play tennis for the university. What could you tell me about that?
I am now discussing it with one russian firm, which sends russian students/sportsman to the usa for studying. To get into this program, you have to be good at english (pass TOEFL test) and have decent tennis results.I`ve got some nice results in tennis europe tournaments, having the ranking near top 200! However I have got no ITF ranking. But my english is pretty good for my age.
All kind of info will be appreciated.

Mardy Fish!

Re: College Tennis Official Thread

Hey Mark!

I have heard of some of your results and things. I think it is great that you are taking advantage of the opportunity to come to the States and study at our great universities. However, it is a controversial thing of letting foreigners into our schools and taking the spots of our Americans, but that's another story

You seem like a guy that would go to a slightly smaller college(just me). You seem like a great player, but I don't know if you are the player that college coaches are really going to recruit badly for(I may be wrong). That means Division I schools(like University of Texas, Ohio State U, U of Florida, U of North Carolina, Virginia Tech, Florida State) may not target you as much as players they are familiar with by going to the tournaments and scouting and stuff like that. I don't know if coaches are looking at you or if they know to target you or not??

Some people are different. Some like to go to big schools and play way down the roster(like BIG Division I schools, teh ones I listed above), and some like to star at small schools. Smaller schools are from Division II, Division III, the NAIA divisions. If you would like it somewhere in between playing at a big school and staring at a small school, smaller Division I schools are the perfect fit. These schools are still big time D1 schools, but usually with a less undergraduate enrollment. I think you would be a good fit for a smaller Division I school. Going to these schools are very underrated. They are still division I, have a nice size to them, usually are in medium-small towns, and have very competitive conferences.


I may have gone completely out of orbit with this long rant, but I hope it is some help you are looking for. It is from the tennis side of things. If you'd like to know about stuff from the more academic side of things, Jeff (out_here_grindin) can help you.

BY the way, how old are you??

Thanks for the info. I`ll just try to translate to understand it all now
I am 16 (dob: 01/04/1993), but I probably look younger than I am (14 or 15) but I have already finished the school this year
I`ve got some russian friends, who play for us universities : Nikita Ryashchenko, 19 (Utah State University), Andrey Morozov (19, Troy University, Alabama state), Viktoria Zhilkina, 17 (Michigan Technological University), but i doubt you can know them

Re: College Tennis Official Thread

Wow I thought you were much older!! I do not know why though. You probably have a great chance of getting into a school like your friends.

Re: College Tennis Official Thread

At 16 you have time to get better and get more attention. Keep at it dude, you could get into a school like Utah State for sure.
