Would be a great Christmas present for Ohio State tennis if Blaz Rola returned for his final year of eligibility, but in the meantime...
Including Marko Goles-Babic, 4 new Buckeyes will be added to the roster for the Spring season.
The one that offers greatest promise is from Finland, Herkko Pollanen, who just turned 19 in July. Pollanen was #16 in the world Junior rankings, and now ranks #736 on the ATP singles tour.
Some very lofty words from Buckeye head coach Tucker,
"Herkko has all of the credentials to come in and start right away for the Buckeyes,” Tucker said. “We are extremely happy he chose Ohio State because he had the chance to turn professional after an unbelievable junior career. He has had some big wins in Davis Cup play for Finland and we look for Herkko to be an All-American and a team leader.”
