The Recruiting Thread - '12 Spring Class Rankings Out
 
This will be for all of the recruiting news.

2010 signing has passed, with Duke holding the #1 class, followed by UCLA 2nd, Michigan 3rd, Georgia 4th.

This is according to tennisrecruiting.net, where all commitments are noted. Check out the top 2010 classes here http://tennisrecruiting.net/article.asp?id=902

2011 Fall signing day has passed. Players will keep committing until Spring signing day, the final deadline for the 2011 season.

Re: The Recruiting Thread
 
In 2011, In my opinion, the Vanderbilt Commordores will have the #1 recruiting class, but the big story of this class will be the emergence of the Ivy League landing big time recruits. Harvard will have a top 10 class, not to mention Cornell and Columbia's incredible classes, with a combined 2 blue chips, and 8 5-star recruits to play in the fall of 2011. Penn, Brown, Yale, and Princeton also have 5-star recruits signed. UCLA's class will probably be ranked #2 and South Carolina may be right behind them with a top-5 calibur class.

A lot of talent has shifted from the Pac-10, specifically Stanford, USC, and Cal, and back to the SEC- such as Vanderbilt, South Carolina, Florida, and Tennessee. Duke, after there #1 class in 2010 which included 2 blue chip recruits, will get another BC this year as will Virginia after they got Justin Shane amd Domijan in 2010.

In summary, after a scary 2010 recruiting season where it looked like the big talent was going to big programs (such as the "Pac-3" and Virginia), the talent is spreading out again and coming back to the SEC and of course the Ivy League cannot be ignored while mentioning the '11 class

Re: The Recruiting Thread
 
The tennisrecruiting.net rankings are very good. However they do not rank teams based on their international players, so teams that recruit primarilt international liek Texas Tech or Oklahoma do not appear in the rankings. Also teh Ivy League has put together some strong recruiting classes in recent years but it has yet to translate to the courts.


Recruit news: USC gets son of Andre Gomez to join them for the upcoming season

Emilio Gomez will be the Robert Farah for USC in a matter of time. His ATP career-high ranking is already in the 500's and he's beaten some real talented guys on the tour. Huge sign for the Trojans

Re: The Recruiting Thread - '11 Poll out! Vandy #1, UCLA #2 (AGAIN), 3 Ivy L in top 1
 
tennisrecruiting.net published a poll of the top 25 2011 recruiting classes.

#1- Vanderbilt - 2 blue chips, 2 5-stars and more. Great class. Vandy leading great classes in the SEC
#2- UCLA - The Bruins 2nd straight year at #2 with 2 blue chips just like last year.
#3- South Carolina - A much-needed class from the struggling Gamecocks. SEC is getting better and better.
#4- CORNELL - Who would have thought this Ivy League school would be top 5?
#5- Tennessee - 2 great signs for the Vols who will lose 3 of their top 6! (Smith, Conkic, Fago)
#6- Virginia - Cavs will lose Shabaz and Singh, but gain 1 standout junior, Mitchell Frank. Domijan-Frank-Jenkins should be the best top 3 in 2011
#7- Columbia - Columbia adds to their top 25 class last year. Sweet 16 may be possible.
#8- Baylor - Couple of Europeans for the Bears
#9- USC - Eric Johnson is one of the best juniors in America, great sign by the Trojans, although the Bruins are building very rapidly. Should be a great UCLA-USC rivalry in 2011
#10- Harvard - Ivy League will be extremely competitive. It should be a battle between Harvard and Columbia for the title
#11- Notre Dame - Notre Dame has had a top 11 class since 2007:eek: Final Four for the Irish?
For the rest of the top 25, visit the link http://tennisrecruiting.net/article.asp?id=976

Ohio State picks up blue chip Christopher Diaz.

Meanwhile Hunter Harrington has been demoted from blue chip to 5 star. Great, already regressing

UW with the top WA player. He has a great chance of playing in the singles line-up right away.

I do find it strange that UW doesn't get more Californians since we recruit them in every other sport, but I suppose UW tends to have an international roster.

USC,UCLA,Stanford lock down the very top California players. The rest go to various places.

Yeah Emmet Egger looks rally good. I look at their record vs Blue chippers to determine if they are a strong blue chip or a weaker blue chip. Hunter Harrington(Clemson commit) was a weaker blue chip and now has been reduced to 5 star. We are also getting transfer from Auburn-Montgomery(NAIA) Ayrton Wiborow.

Don't get too excited about the Ivy League commits though, they have had big recruits in the past who turn bad once they get into the school.

UCLA was put at #1 for the final rankings. Marcos Giron leads their group. They bwill be a really good team next year with the talent that is returning and the new guys coming in.

Giron may be out for a while now with an injury

Virginia picks up 4 blue chips: Mac Styslinger, John Richmond, Mitchell Polnet and Ryan Shane.

Im back. Coach Boland doing it again at UVA.........

Good to see you Ozone. Fall season over and the new spring year about to kick off. Boland can basically get whoever he wants. Styslinger is good but the other 3 are slightly below current UVA standards. They will likely play lower parts of the line-up.

I was dissappointed to see Richmond not go to Clemson.

Yeah I thought he was a lock for Clemson. Harrington-Richmond combo would have been good for the future

I'll hold my judgement on Harrington. He qualified for a future which was encouraging. But also had some bas losses in the ITA fall season. So we will see about him.
