    These two boys are my friend's nephews.
    Richard Pham and Victor Pham.
    I could believe how good they are til I looked them up.

    Richard is a 5star. He is highly being recruited by all the big name colleges. And he's only a sophomore.

    Victor is younger but badder. Rank 5th nationally, 1st in Cali. Blue chip.

    I'm not sure about going pro, but for sure both of them will get a free ride to any big school they choose. Free education for sure. I hope their parents have set solid plans for them, kids can burn out at anytime if they manage them wrongly.

    Anyhow, I can't link their direct links. But you can just type their names in the search for player on the right side of the page at tennisrecruiting.net

    Best of luck to them.

    Friend's nephews eh?

    Sure, they look to be having great junior careers thus far, but considering they are a sophomore and a 7th grader it's a little early for predictions that bold. I doubt, for example, that UVA would be interested in giving the older one a full scholarship at this point. So maybe not "any big school they choose." Time will tell.

    Perhaps a bit bold. From what my buddy was telling me, the boys are practicing and improving their games. Their heads are in the right direction. They're doing great in school. They are fit with proper health conditioning. Again you're right. Time will tell.

    Two problems with your post. Recruiting starts in the junior year on September 1st when the coaches can send email to the recruit. Secondly, there are 4.5 scholarships on a mens tennis team. You basically have to be the #1 recruit in the country to get a full ride at a top tennis school like USC, UVa etc. So Richard would have to jump around 40 spots to be considered for one.

    I see. Thx for the clarification. It's just that their resumes looks pretty promising. I'm impressed.

    I never said that it wasn't. To reach that level of tennis takes an incredible amount of practice and dedication. Good work to both of the boys and keep it up. Looks like Richard has interest in some great schools.
