Re: Transfers to and from Schools

It's reaching a little bit to count junior colleges and international colleges. The whole point of a junior college is that you graduate and then transfer to a four-year school, so it's not like a junior college player is "poached". International universities don't have tennis teams, and so it's really no different than recruiting any international player.

Still a lot of transfers, but I think it takes away from the point a bit to add those categories.

One thing I have noticed is that it seems a lot of the transfers are

1. International
2. Going to schools in larger cities (i.e. not "college towns")

Not sure what to make of that. Just an observation.

Re: Transfers to and from Schools

I will be splitting this thread into 2 separate threads. One for 5+ players transferring IN to a college and the other for 5+ players transferring OUT of a college.

Good point.

If I could piggyback on your observation, some junior colleges can be a good choice for academic reasons. While the junior college in aggregate would normally not be as academically as strong as a four year college, some of them have very good English as a Second Language programs which maybe suited for the foreign player who can speak some English, but would have a hard time reading novels, textbooks, writing papers, etc in English while training so many hours on the tennis court.
