You can appeal up or down, but good luck trying to go down. I tried to appeal a 3.5 rating down to 3.0 but was denied because I was a collegiate swimmer. Given your person played HS tennis, I am almost certain your new player will be denied.
If your person logs into their USTA account, there is a link in the upper right to Appeal Rating Level.
