    Mate Zsiga of Hungary has the most impressive junior record. He and Lars Behlen signed in November. I had not heard of Marko Krickovic until I saw your posting. He signed just yesterday.

    It is hard to project where the Germans will play. Baylor has had some top-notch Germans and some who never rose from the #5/#6 part of the lineup.

    Even if those two are staying that does not look like a strong team. Jones at 3 and Chaplin at 4 is pretty weak

    I don't think he is ready yet for the pros. He is just too slow and needs to work on speed and movement

    A Kentucky note: Grant Roberts played some this year, so he is not a redshirt freshman next year.

    Perhaps someone who knows the NCAA regulations can comment on this. Not sure.

    It's been rumored that Johnny Wang who committed to Carnegie Mellon might go to USC, but has not yet been confirmed. I have also heard they are getting Emilio Gomez's cousin in the fall of 2012.

    I like see Kandath play like the top recruit he was, Jamin's got a good game but Ho looks good but he's like fish out of water in this league, he'll contribute in doubles ..

    I think UCLA should still be pretty good next year. Giron has the potential to be way better than Kosakowski. Meister has great experience playing in the top of the lineup and should be a much better fit at #2. With having Puget and Thompson loading the middle, you have some great depth. Losing Seguso is probably a blessing. They can definitely still battle with USC next year. I wish I could attend those matches.

    J.Wang ,another SoCal kid.. 2 years ago he was hot,took Lin to 3 sets ,being 2 years younger,has beaten M.Giron and has some nice wins,but again,he has some real ugly losses, he sort of disappeared the last 2 years.. if he can get his **** together ,he's a player to watch.. I'm looking for Peter Smith to do some USC magic with this kid, like he did with D.Win and Steve Johnson.

    fell off since 16 .. cold weather is too cold.. lol.. I'm happy to see a bunch of our SoCal boys staying close to home ,they're either advancely smart or really spoiled ,you choose .. tennis is meant to be played outdoors ..

    caught a bit of UCLA vs. USC prelude yesterday.. Dennis Mkrtchian vs. J.Wang.. fun to watch ,DM won 7-6 ,6-3.. good battle .. JW had 2 set point to break but couldn't convert.. DM is looking real good.. he still has potential to be the best(even better than Koz,and Giron)from recent years UCLA.. maybe pro level if he can straighten out his head..

    He is definately going to be a great college player, but he has almost no chance of going pro. His backhand is very shaky and his serve isnt big enough. Great forehand tho.

    his serve and backhand will get better.. his court coverage is going to be awesome for a 6 footer plus ,if he went to USC he will be the next pro out of SoCal.. after Steve Johnson...

    Junior Ore looks good and we'll see now that he got a wild card into Kalamazoo. Jacob Szabo actually is a serve and volley Australian and should be fun to watch. Incoming Jeremy efferling just lost in the quarterfinals of the 18's claycourt. They're all young and haven't fully matured, so they may surprise some people. But losing Krajeck and Dadamo is going to leave a hole unless Bautista and some of the others keep improving.

    Jack Sock will not be appearing in any 2012 NCAA matches. Turned pro today.

    How is Texas Longhorns looking next year? I think they were hoping Jack Sock would go to Texas, but without him, did they pick up anyone good to replace their senior class (plus the hole from the previous senior class which they didn't seem to replace well).

    I would have put money down that Sock was headed to Nebraska but now we will all never know! Hoping the Huskers have a good year but by no means a contender for the title. Should be interesting in the Big 10 now, Ohio State sure seems loaded and ready to play...

    With the loss of Steve Johnson, Stanford will be favored to win it all next year.
