What's with all the interest in Pepperdine?

There is an article on Tennis Recruiting about Tayler Davis and her verbal committment to California. Cal still has two more scholarships for next year, while Davis is good and probably will get better...we need someone to fill the No. 2-3 spot. I'm hoping it's Raykova or Radeva.

After Stanford, Cal, UCLA & USC if you want to play in California the next school in the recruiting pecking order is perennial top 25 team Pepperdine. It's location in beautiful and famous Malibu is very appealing.

Cal slots next year
1. Marina Cossou
2. Stephany Chang
3. Mari Anderson
4. Rachael Dillon
5. Susana Chmelarova
6. 08-09 TBD

You say Cal has two more 'ships for next year. Is that because Davis is a walk-on or is Cal carrying over 1 open slot from this year to next year?

5. Susana Chmelarova

You say Cal has two more 'ships for next year. Is that because Davis is a walk-on or is Cal carrying over 1 open slot from this year to next year?

I don't believe that Chmelarova (who was at Baylor for her freshman and sophomore years) has transferred. I saw that on College Tennis Online a few weeks ago, but if you look at Baylor's current roster (which has been updated with Borsanyi), she is still at Baylor. I don't think it would be that great of a transfer for California as she would fill the No. 3-5 singles spot.

The three departing scholarships for California at the end of the 2009 are Ilckinas, Bobusic, and Ravelojaona (she's a red shirt senior). I imagine Cal's line-up this year will be No. 1 Cossou, No. 2 Ilckinas, No. 3 Anderson, No. 4 Ravelojaona, No. 5 Bobusic, No. 6 Chang (although I think No. 4-6 seem to be pretty even). I'm curious to see how Chang will play on the college level though. She got blitzed by Zemenova (love and love) in a Challenger event this summer.

With that being said, Cal needs to recruit one player who can play competitively at No. 2-3 next year, and two players to fit the No. 4-6 gap. Davis will play in the lower half of the line-up, so they need another lower line-up player as well as a top player (2-3) player.

I mentioned Raykova because she has ties to Weil (a pipeline for the California men) and her along with Radeva seem to be close to some of the male tennis players. Sure that doesn't say a lot but could play a factor. I am aware that Raykova has intentions to turn pro.

I don't think Rachel Dillon will have a chance to play as a starting singles player in her career. In terms of ability and the other players on the team, I can't see her having a starting singles spot. That is unless someone is injured or Cal has a poor recruiting class. She's going to have to be content with being a double specialist. I'm not exactly sure why Cal picked her up but hopefully she can turn into a very good doubles player.

I just realized that Georgia Tech has no room for new players next year.

Assuming that all players on the roster are on scholarship, which seems valid. I'm assuming Blau is on scholarship because she is an international player (even though she doesn't seem to be that good). Tech has one senior graduating and provided Marino does not turn pro, there are no more spots at Georgia Tech.

Effectively anyone who lists Georgia Tech is not going to head there (unless Marino decides early to turn pro). I would be surprised if she doesn't turn pro.

There is an article on Tennis Recruiting about Tayler Davis and her verbal committment to California.
Tayler Davis's Choice is Golden (http://tennisrecruiting.net/)

A quote from the Davis article.
"There is a family connection to a sports agent in the Bay Area, BDA Sports, that represents many professional athletes,..."

BDA stands for Bill Duffy Associates. They paid a "runner" $300,000 to deliver NBA player O.J. Mayo to sign with them. O.J. Mayo has since left BDA because if proven what BDA did can be charged as a felony in California. This same runner was bribed with a $50,000 luxury SUV by USC alum former NFL player Ronnie Lott to deliver O.J. Mayo to USC.

By the way Ronnie Lott and Bill Duffy are childhood friends.
Ronnie Lott & Bill Duffy = very shady :devil:
Tyler Davis after graduation you don't want to work for a shady boss like Bill Duffy.

Christy Striplin is the lone Senior so Marino may take her spot in the event she goes doesnt go pro. I do think she'll turn pro, which is a blow to GA Tech

Radeva is taking an official visit in October.

form
Sep 27th, 2008, 08:27 PM
And so it continues...that makes three 21-22 year old touring pro's the NCAA has cleared for this year

Three rules on eligibilty but somehow the NCAA is looking the other way on 'professionals' who are coming back over...

1) Must start college within 1 year of finishing HS (grad Jun 06-must start by Sep 07) or play no matches after that 1 yr date... or lose a year of eligiblity and sit a year in residence.

2) Grad date NOW (new rule last year so should impact all these kids) based on your freshman year of HS... so you aren't supposed to be able to stretch HS by going part time for 5 years... Lots of kids used to delay HS grad date so there "clock" did not start. Thus how can you be a 21 year old freshman?

3) No matter when you grad HS, you cannot play any tournaments after your 20th birthday... must start college by 20th dbay or lose a year; sit a year in residence.

YET, HERE ARE THREE PRO'S WHO HAVE DOUBLED BACK AND BEEN CLEARED?

Juricova should not be eligible
$25K prize money
WTA Women's Tour # 253
Age 21 Freshman
NCAA rule violotion: played 8 tournaments after her 20th birthday but before she enrolled at Cal (that is supposed to be sit a year; lose a year
Possible violation # 2: When did she start HS to have just graduated?
Question: How is she immediatley eligible; did not sit in residency last year?

Andersson at Cal
$27K prize money
WTA Women's Tour # 335
Age 22 freshman
NCAA rule violation: played 20+ tournaments after her 20th birthday, etc...
Apparently has sat one year out at Cal; they have her listed as a freshman... should be a sophomore


Widjaja at UOP
$75K prize money
WTA # 186 (that's women's rank... not juniors)
Age 21 when she enrolled last January 08
Violation # 1: Has sat one year ... likely for playing 22 WTA tournaments including Quals at the French, Wimbledon and US Open... after her 20th bday
Question: When did she graduate HS... if before 2006 (age 18) she should be ineligible another year?
Joke comment: And someone with $75K in prize money and 75 pro women's tournaments... regardless of receipts... was declared an amateur? REALLY :rolleyes:


The NCAA's new Eligibility Center is a joke... MORE kids are slipping through... not less. :fiery: And what of the schools that play by the rules and told these ladies they could not get eligible?


Heard a few are pushing for tighter rules:
- Must start college by first fall after graduating HS... which would be good for US and Int'l kids who do this ridiculous 'give playing pro a shot' thing... just go to school
- Must start by age 19 or not play any tournaments after your 19th bday to be eligible... EXCELLENT IDEA based on above

Those three touring pro's will be 24-25 year old seniors.

Question: Do they get there scholarships if the 'retire' before they finish?:cuckoo:

Must have been the player... Coaches can't do that until after they sign. And that listing shows as a 'verbal' not an LOI...

I noticed a super talented German named Laura Claus has UCLA and Stanford listed... I think that web site is taking off so the foreign kids are surfing it for info...

Where to see who has signed: It shows on individual pages or go to the last page of commitments for the 2009 year... They list the foreign signings at the end of each class (currently page 3)

Regarding Wowchuk, I don't put much stock in ITF or WTA rankings, until a player has played enough events and gotten into the top 50 ITF and/or top 300-400 WTA.....hard to draw conclusions on rankings higher than that in my opinion. There are some top 100 ITF kids that have traveled extensively, etc, to get their points.

If you look at her head-to-head results, she has beaten some pretty tough juniors.....and she turns 17 next month, so still younger than most HS seniors......for what it's worth.......

Gouci - when you say a player is "playing the ITF junior and women's circuit", does that mean that they are NOT playing college tennis?

gouci
Nov 29th, 2008, 06:07 PM
When I say they are playing the ITF women's circuit it means they have played in multiple ITF women's pro tournaments. They are trying the minor leagues of women's tennis aspiring to go pro. That is kind of a note to myself, every month or so to check if those players have acquired a WTA ranking.

If their status of playing the ITF women's circuit doesn't change, meaning they don't acquire a WTA ranking and I haven't listed one for them then most likely they will end up playing college tennis. However they didn't sign early because they are trying to become a pro. Some may sign in the Spring and others may even take 6 months to a year off after graduation to chase their pro dreams. This is also probably the case for players with WTA rankings outside the top 400.

BCS football schools have been taking on more and more walk ons that will never play more than 2 fall tournies per year.

They need the female head count to offset football numbers. So they are willing to help kids get admitted and get classes.... UCLA has about four or five now that could not start for most top 150 schools at any level. But they got into UCLA which is the toughest admission in America right now.

My guess would thus be going to UCLA (as a legacy) was more important than her tennis to the student-athlete. Zalameda could play bottom half at some west coast non Pac schools but she prefers UCLA... which is not exactly chump change for a school.

Hey Gouci, not many spots left in California area... what are your thoughts:

UCLA - Montez & Hoffpauir in... full

USC - Polido-Velasco in ... full (D. Lao announced for 2010.. waiting to get in... like a backed up airport)

Cal - Radeva & T. Davis in... two unnanounced.

talented german Laura Claus has Stanford & UCLA list since months ago.. but they are both full. Wonder if Cal is now on her radar?)

Stanford -- Tan & Burdette plus ? Notes here indicated one more in for Yen out?

# 16 Fresno State -- FIVE open spots from # 1, # 4 and 6, 7 and 8.
No doubt int'l (which is fine) since those kids don't know how god awful the Fresno area and below avg the uni is. Heard any word hear?

Arizona State: Loaded... Cako and Smith in while someone is headed out (Van Horne?)

Arizona: Irving in and one still open (they lose their # 1, need a big dog)

SD State: #2 (really their # 1) , 3 and 5 graduate but nothing announced yet.

UNLV: # 2 and # 3 graduate... nothing announced yet

Pepperdine: Isip in ... full

Long Beach State: Three announced .... full

U San Diego: One available; nothing announced

UC Irvine: Just one announced (Smith) so three still unfilled/unannounced?

Cal Poly: One announced and one still unfilled/unannounced?

St Marys: One open/unannounced

UCSB: Nobody graduating; heard rumor one may be returning overseas

Nothridge: Two graduating with nothing announced

I think California will sign one more (they currently have six) just in case someone gets injured (Florida's problem this year). Cal needs to save one scholarship for next year as they will have no seniors on next year's team.

Hey Gouci, not many spots left in California area... what are your thoughts:

Fresno St. - Modoc is a legacy and I'm guessing a scholarship player.

SDSU - Julia Hansen of Germany had interest here.

Pepperdine - My guess is Petrova will be axed.

St. Mary's - I count 2 openings from Calvo & Young.

Long Beach St. - What announcement? I didn't see you post anything here. Form you're being coy :tape:, but I can play along. Ignore the giant elephant in the room. :lol:


Looking ahead at 2010-2011.

UCLA - 2 openings from Schnack & Wetmore.

USC - Filled. Openings from Fansler & Niculescu goes to Lao & Christian.

Cal - 2 openings as of today.

Stanford - 1 opening from Lindsay Burdette. It was Mallory Burdette in and Clayton not Yen out.

Arizona St. - 1 opening from Nadia Abdala.

So the big 5 Southwest Pac-10 teams will only have 6 openings for 2010-2011. Less if Cal signs 1 this year.

UC Irvine - Good time to load up on HS juniors with few openings from the big 5 above.

Cal Poly - As of today they have 6 openings to fill by 2011. 2 for 2010 + 4 for 2011. Can't rebuild all at once so expect them to drop off. Maybe bring in more transfers?

UCSB - 4 openings for 2011 from Murphy, Hausman, Onaga & Ojeda. Can see Chaichanachaicharn going back but I think they can use her for 2011.

With Cal Poly and UCSB losing a lot by 2011, 3rd & 4th place in the Big West will be open to UC Davis, CSUN or Pacific for the taking.

Okay, I will post Long Beach State's last two signings. Two young ladies from overseas that are/were ranked pretty high in the ITF Junior ranks. Klaudia Malenovska, from Bratislava, Slovak Republic, has been ranked as high as 54 in the world, and Jaklin Alawi from Sofia, Bulgaria, ranked as high as 170. These two should step in and be real factors right from the get go. I know some of the fans from other Big West schools thought next year was the year to dethrone LB, since Grady graduates, but it looks like that may not be the case. Sorry Gouci but you may have to wait a little longer :lol:. The next three or so years maybe LB's best :D.

Apr 26th, 2009, 05:46 PM
Rob you are understating things! I suspect that's because Form is being coy :tape: with the Long Beach St. fans too. But I tell it like it is. Rob I will tell you what Form and I both already know.

Jaklin Alawi

1. WTA current ranking of #884.


Klaudia Malenovska

1. KM has a win over Julia Cohen (Miami) who is currently ranked #6 nationally in singles. Cohen was ranked as high as the #1 high school recruit in 2007.

2. KM has a win over Chelsey Gullickson (Georgia) who is currently ranked #3 nationally in singles. Gullickson was also ranked as high as the #1 high school recruit in 2008.

3. KM has had a WTA ranking as high as #575 in the world. For comparison Julia Boserup, the #1 high school recruit in 2009, her highest WTA ranking is only #604.

4. KM has bested all the #1 HS recruits in the last 3 years. Rob pass this along to your buddies, Malenovska must be considered an NCAA singles title contender. If KM doesn't become an All-American before leaving LBS then she can be argued as a bust.

5. And when that NCAA singles tourney is played in 2010 Malenovska will also be a 21 year old freshman for Long Beach St. As I recall Form really hates 21 year old freshmen. :lol:

form
Apr 26th, 2009, 07:20 PM
She just turned 20 this week... so don't over state... so she's still 2 years younger as a frosh than the UOP and Cal professionals. You might be a tad optimistic as she also cannot play any tournaments until she arrives at LB in Sept since she is 20... so there will be a layoff... per NCAA 20 year old rule. BTW... while you are throwing out challenges, keep the $78 K pro at UOP in mind too... who has much bigger pedigree and may still slip in this year (Boise girl beating Gloria may throw everything for a loop on Tuesday). :bounce:

# 5 -- Signed at age 19... not 21... but since this is how they have established the BAD rules and since the competition is in, do you just drive off the cliff voluntarily on your principles?

Personally I'd like to see the elimination of the 1 year grace period rule... that would knock a lot of the upper age and professional experimentation (US girls just as guilty) off. You must start by the first September after your graduation AND you must finish HS in four years (none of the dragging it out over 5 years but not taking the finals stuff). But that's not how the rules currently are written.

You did not even mention Alawi.... she's gonna be a nice upper half of line up add too most likely.

Question for you Gouci: Your friends on the LB chat seem to miss you since your WT team admirably fought last week and your WG team choked. So you like giving it out but not willing to take it? :tape:

Nice also to hear hat Alawi can compete for an upper half line-up spot. A little competition has never hurt anyone, and it will be good for the team.

Sundaram just got put into the 2009 rankings and checked in at #31. Not sure why she wasn't ranked before - maybe she didn't play enough. It's funny how some people think that top 1000 WTA is like signing your name on the SAT but think that top-30 US juniors is spectacular...when it
actually all depends on the year.

That said, top 1000 (although it takes significant talent to get that many points) doesn't mean "surefire college star". Sure, more girls at that level succeed than fail but PLENTY fail. A lot of players see coming to college as a big step down or even a "retirement". They still have the talent but not the desire and they're using their skill just to get a free education.

Parija Maloo is a freshman at S. Alabama. It's too early to call her a bust but she was 616 WTA and is doing poorly in the middle of the lineup for a middle of the pack team. Rachel Dillon was 675 WTA and was a bust at Cal. I could name dozens more.

The point is, it's very hard to get enough points, especially for a top 700 ranking, but motivation is a huge factor, as is going to the right place with a coach that knows how to handle seasoned players and doesnt treat them like 18 year-old Americans.

Danielle Mills told me that she will play for the University of Miami in August. She originally planned to take a year off to see where her ranking would go. Personally, I think she made a great choice!

Florida adds Caroline Hitimana from Belgium, joining Allie Will, Claire Bartlett and Lauren Embree as new additions for 09-10. No mention of Brittany Borsanyi. Wonder how many will still be there next year?

1. Usually walk-ons don't get mentioned in releases.

2. Florida kept its top 4 singles and lost 2 players that Will and Embree would have bumped down to the bench. No reason to think that the underclassmen starters who will have playing time wouldn't still be there 2 seasons from now.

3. Schools have changed to using TRN rankings in their releases, legitimizing the TRN rankings, over the USTA national rankings. A player will have a higher ranking, which sounds better, from a smaller pool in her graduation class than among several classes included in the USTA Girls 18 national rankings.

4. “Not only do we have accomplished tennis players with great skill, but more importantly, all have great character." Maybe a parting shot at the players that just transferred?

5. "With the continued leadership from (rising seniors) Anastasia (Revzina) and Marrit (Boonstra) and the addition of these four players, we have the making of a team that will compete heavily for the national championship.” The coach is right that Florida will be one of the early favorites next season.

Definitely! Florida will be hard to beat. Great recruits. Borsanyi is the dark horse. A silent gem. Academic scholar that can handle UF and tennis. Maybe a new concept..... Look forward to watching.

Agreed. Very few players should skip college. Education is the most important.

Assuming the team stays healthy, they won't have to rely on intramural walk ons next year. They should actually have really good depth, which has been a rarity in the Thornqvist era. If they can stay healthy and come together as a team, the sky is the limit for this group. They're certainly talented enough to beat anyone.

Borsanyi is not an "intramural" walk on. She was recruited by many top schools but chose to play for Thornqvist. Anyone recruited by Thornqvist is a great player. Looking forward to a great Gator season.

WHAT??

Barbara I can understand, but MEGAN??
I know she's had problems before @ FL (personal), but I didn't think she'd transfer because her sister just enrolled there.
Does that mean Jessica is going to transfer too?

I believe those were out of desperation. Probably some girls who play for the soccer team or what not LOL.

Is Borsanyi for sure going to enroll @ FL? Her older sister transferred last year. Hard to imagine how that works.
