Recruiting Class Ranked #12 in the USA!

SALT LAKE CITY – The University of Utah men’s tennis team’s 2011 signing class has been ranked 12th by Tennisrecruiting.net, the highest rating a Utah signing class has ever received.

“We are very proud to receive such great recognition for our recruiting class,” said Utah head coach F.D. Robbins. “Adding three top prospects to our program and retaining every one of our starters from last year is very exciting. This is the best recruiting class we have ever put together. We will have a very talented team next year but we will still be very young and have a lot of growing to do. I am looking forward to the start of the upcoming season and all the hard work we are going to put in.”

In an earlier ranking, released in January, Utah had been given a ranking of No. 24 ranking, then the highest-ever rating for a Ute recruiting class. It included only two players, Slim Hamza, a Tunisian native ranked among the Top 100 junior players in the world, and 5-star recruit Geoffrey “Ace” Matias of Torrance, Calif. The addition of Sahak Bazrganian, a Blue Chip recruit from Glendale, Calif. who has been ranked as high as 15th in the country, pushed Utah to a No. 12 ranking.

Further proof of the recruiting power of the Pac-12 conference is that Utah’s No. 12 national recruiting ranking is just the fourth-highest among Pac-12 schools, sitting just below No. 1 UCLA, No. 8 USC, and No. 10 Stanford .
