Re: 2008-2009 recruiting - high interest

One transfer by itself will not draw attention for a program, but programs having 4 or more transfers within 5 years for example will.

Now we know the answer to the question why someone would transfer from Northwestern to Cal Poly. The answer is for playing time.

Oh well, Northwestern's loss is the Big West's gain!

Re: 2008-2009 recruiting - high interest

Getting Chernyakova could turn out to be a bad thing, she is a horrible tennis player.

2016 Title(s):
Suicide: Strasbourg

Form seems like I'm gonna have to set you straight again.

1. Your niece is not as good as Chloe Jones, a blue chip player that has been ranked in the top 10 of her graduating class each of the last 4 years. Playing 14 ITF women's pro tournaments in 2008, Jones' 1st and career high WTA ranking is #978 which she only earned 5 days ago.

To imply anyone with a pulse can have a 900 WTA ranking is ridiculous. Blue chip players such as Aeriel Ellis are trying but has never yet acquired a WTA ranking. In my book anyone with a WTA ranking in the top 1000 is a blue chip caliber player period!

2. You don't think anyone with a WTA ranking of 750+ will turn pro? Well then see Brittany Augustine. She's a pro with a current WTA ranking of 1008. So that note "option to go pro" for WTA rankings in the 1000 neighborhood is based on precedence.

3. When your niece attends the 6th grade you can create a profile for her at tr.net. Be sure to list Long Beach St. as a school of high interest.
