10. Yale = "No spots open"

The only one that didn't change was USC since they have already recruited 3 players for next next year.
Last I checked Yale was also in the Ivy Leagues.

If we're talking about options Turewicz may also choose "none of the above" and turn pro.

That's quite true, let's all hope that Turewicz choose Californian School

The Ivy League really uses this unlimited roster to their advantage.

Brown = has 11 scholarship level players on the roster

Dartmouth = has 10 scholarship level players

Harvard = has 10 scholarship level players

Columbia has had 27 different players on its roster combined from this season and last.
The Columbia coach is the queen of the mass exodus because 13 of those players have left the team with only 3 by graduation.

Re: 2011-2012 recruiting - "speculation only"

I think Cal has a bunch of GOOD players who are blue chips, so am really interested in their college choice.

Turewicz, Tsay, Olmos, Lee, Xepoleas, Guillermo.

They didn't decide yet and I'm quite curious. Hope they all remain in Calfornia

Sophie Letcher - Australia

I speculate Arizona State has a high chance of getting Sophie Letcher. She has a WTA ranking high of #868. I'm guessing she's related to Arizona St. assistant coach Clint Letcher of Australia.

Coach Letcher has help started a pipeline to Australia for ASU with Michelle Brycki and Ashlee Brown coming from down under.

Why guess? You can find the answer on the ASU website (with a little help from Google). Here is a local news article on the Letcher family.

From her record, Sophie should be good enough to get a good college place without relying on nepotism, if that's what she wants. Playing for your brother sounds a bit icky, but that's probably just me.

3. Harvard = "Unlimited"
4. Northwestern = 2 spots open
5. Notre Dame =1 spot open
6. Princeton = "Unlimited"
7. Stanford = No spots open
8. UCLA = No spots open
9. USC = 1 spot open
10. Yale = "Unlimited"

The Ivies are unlimited because they don't offer tennis scholarships.
Duke will have 3 spots. We will be losing Plotkin, Reka and Ellah. Also, I doubt this girl goes Ivy. I hope she comes to Duke with Ellen Tsay...

I think we'll get at least one of Turewicz or Tsay...

Granted I haven't spoken to Ellen in a few years, but I would be really surprised if she goes to Duke.

She told Ellah she's 50/50 between Duke and Stanford. She had a REALLY good visit and got along really well with everyone...

Again, I would be shocked to see her go to Duke. Although at the same time I don't really see her fitting in too well with the current Stanford crop. Still though, my bet is Stanford Sorry.
And if you have ever met Ellen, I bet she tells every school she "doesn't know" and that it's "50/50". Love you Ellen.
