Recruits and transfers

Im posting this thread to get info from new recruits and transfers especially in d1, since I know some of you guys might have some valuable info about that. I am a devoted USF (University of South Florida) fan, and I know we have one incoming transfer from Georgia Southern, Antonio Muñiz. The kid is very very talented, very good technique and great touch. He played mostly at number 1 at Georgia Southern and won the Sun Belt freshman of the year award. Still dissapointing that we dont get to sign a more solid player, since our number 1 and ranked number 15 in the country, Alberto Barroso is leaving. Antonio as I said is great and very fun to watch, but he seems to be on the lazy end and even though he will probably be ranked, he wont be able to fill Alberto´s shoes. If you guys have info on the recruits or transfers in d1 and how they play, it would be very valuable.

I just like to make the point that at USF:
- Men's 6 of 7 are internationals
- Women's 7 of 10 are internationals

Now after saying this, there any many people that will help you find your newest recruit.
GO USA!

Yes but is that unusual ?
 
USF had a pretty good season on the men's side. They started off a bit slow but hit their stride down the stretch.

You're right that it'll be hard to fill #1 but what you take a step back in that area you could make up for with improved depth.

I dont see whats wrong with that, our coaches are not american either. Usf has some major talent with people like Chase Ferguson, Pierre Luquet or the incoming Antonio Muñiz. I agree with Clemson tennis, I hope we can make up with more depth since our numbers 5 and 6 this year lost a lot. Also three freshmans were starters with a number 7 and 8 being freshman too, and Antonio was a freshman too this year, so our team will be really young. What about Clemson, do you know any incoming recruits or tranfers? the results have been pretty disappointing for a school as big as Clemson and an ACC team. Good luck next season!

I watched Ferguson play against Ito here in the NCAA's and was definitely impressed by his fight.

Follow twitter Parsa Bombs for the latest on transfers. So far he's posted 16 on the men's side for D1-mostly guys who werent playing much at one school transferring to where they can play. However, 2 MM guys are transferring to Power 5s: Mark Wallner of Temple to Tenn. and Millen Hurrion of Gardner Webb to Kentucky. 3 players are transferring out of Arizona State. UCSB is receiving two transfers. Bobby Knight used to keep a schedule of transfers-not sure if he will do this year-there were close to 60 into D1 men's last year. This year there is the new transfer portal, but only coaches can see the names. I have heard that some guys on the portal have been approached by up to 40 coaches.

Parsa Bombs is great, but I created this thread to learn about how the recruits and transfers play and not about their UTR since I dont believe in it. Thanks for the info though.

Kyrylo Tsygura played one year at Virginia and one year at Baylor and now he is not on their 2019-2020 roster. Does anyone know where he is now?
 
Jenson Brooksby wins 2 25k Futures crushing top 10 college guys. I love college tennis but at 390 ATP he's wasting his time going to school if he wants to be a pro. If he wants a college education, the experience and some fun fine but nothing good can happen for his tennis, look at Nakashima.

Nothing good except free rackets, free stringing, free coaching, free trainers, free training facilities, free medical care, free nutritionists, free travel, and a built in fan base for life.

I think you are right up to a certain point. He can get training with top players for free while getting a degree. I assume he also has more than that in the package, for example Baylor agrees to pay him to travel to Futures and sponsors him. I assume he wont finish the 4 years though, he will probably quit sooner.

Cameron Norrie just finished 3 yrs at TCU and now jumped up to Top 60 in the world. Think it is all what the players put into it and also gives them a fall back degree or at least progress if being Tennis Professional falls thru, which now days could very well happen.

I didn't see you listed "free education" in there. It is because there is no such thing as student-athlete, just athlete. These guys are "slaves" to the school that they just do not have time to study something meaningful that will prepare them after their tennis days are over. It is such a scam. At 390th in ATP ranking, how is he going to make any money to live?

Fall back degree? What did Norrie study at TCU? did he even graduate from TCU with a marketable degree?

No. I didn't list "free education" because it was already listed in the post I was responding to. Here is the post, if you are interested, "...I love college tennis but at 390 ATP he's wasting his time going to school if he wants to be a pro. If he wants a college education, the experience and some fun fine but nothing good can happen for his tennis..."

How is he "slave" to the school? Because he is bringing in all that sweet tennis money to the school and not being compensated? C'mon, think before you post.

Not to mention you posted this, "At 390th in ATP ranking, how is he going to make any money to live?" Exactly, that's why you go to college.

Is this a joke? Tennis is a non-revenue generate sport. It sucks money from revenue sports like football and basketball. There is zero or very little TV revenue in college tennis.

Of course it's a joke. You really need to work on reading comprehension. You claimed that tennis student athletes are "slaves," so I asked why you think they are "slaves," so they can bring in that sweet tennis money?

Not sure what your point is supposed to be here, however, none of the things you mentioned will improve his tennis game in such magnitude for him to be beneficial to go to college. Signing a professional agency contract will bring him literally everything you wrote with the fact that coaches will be better, as well as the medical care. Oh yes, he'd also be financially sponsored for certain amount of years. For a player like Brooksby, I do not see a real reason or necessity to go to college. We already know that he is at least top 100 potential. He should give it a shot.

What? Almost all big tennis universities are associated with academic medical centers, which is where the college players receive their care. This is also where the ATP players eventually go when they need top notch medical care. The college players receive this fantastic care year round.

I think he's potentially destined for greatness, but tennis is a pretty hit or miss career. Maybe a top 100 can make a solid living. Maybe a top 20 can make a fortune. Good coaching staff and degree isn't a bad thing. But if he does well in pro tourneys in the next couple years, I bet he goes pro by the end of his sophomore campaign.
