2011-2012 recruiting - "speculation only"
 
Lynda Xepoleas - blue chip

Rumor has it Lynda Xepoleas took an unofficial visit to Purdue.

gouci, do you know anything about Monica Turewicz. I have to confess that I have a certain fondness for her since she was the first junior player I watched at Ojai, against Megan Heneghan..:) At TR she listed so many schools it's not really helpful at all :)

And dunno why Xepoleas visited Purdue, I want to 'watch' her, she should be a good enough recruit for any Pac-10 teams..:)

I usually don't hold back on revealing what I know. Why because if you wait too long the info may become public and you can't take credit for it. :lol:

Ex. When I made the post about Xepoleas 2 days ago you looked at her TRN profile and didn't see any schools listed and asked if I was sure about Purdue. Today on her profile Purdue is now listed. So if I had waited just 2 more days to post, that info would have been made public and I couldn't take credit for it. You have to call it before it goes public to claim credit for breaking the news. :lol:

I'm hoping that Turewicz goes to Cal. She has the Weil connection which has been known as a pipeline to at least the Cal men's team. I also think it helped us recruit Radeva.

At a minimum she will take a visit to Cal, and then its up to the team to wow her (Marino also from Weil took a visit before deciding on Tech)

We can break down the probability of Turewicz's high interest choices, assuming no transfers and removal of scholarships from current scholarship players.

1. California = 1 spot open
2. Duke = Maybe 1 spot open, I don't know if Plotkin is taking a redshirt year. If she is then there will be no spots open.
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.

You're right, I also researched recently and found out that 'Weil Connection' :scared: Too bad Xepoleas, also from Weil, seems to go to Purdue. Since De Simone and Santamaria is heading to USC, Cal really seems to have a chance. It wouldn't be a bad choice, either. ;)

great analysis! Yeah it makes sense all the more for Turewicz to go to Cal, maybe less competition than USC, she can play at the higher position, I guess (although she IS the current California ranking #1 Junior ;) )

Oh wait I just realized I did this wrong. I based it off of the senior class, but she's a junior. I'll re-do it in a few.

Scholarship spots open at Turewicz's high interest schools:

1. California = 2 spots open
2. Duke = 2 sports open
3. Harvard = "Unlimited"
4. Northwestern = 1 spot open
5. Notre Dame =1-2 spots open
6. Princeton = "Unlimited"
7. Stanford = 2-3 spots open
8. UCLA = 3 spots open
9. USC = 2 spots open (2 already taken)
10. Yale = "Unlimited"

The only one that didn't change was USC since they have already recruited 3 players for next next year.

WHAT WHAT WHAT? 3, NOT 2? WHO WHO??!!! You MUST tell me :help: (I know De Simone and Santamaria)

Oooops my bad again. It's 2...USC always has a nasty habit of recruiting early which tends to make it confusing although its probably a really smart strategy because they can start focusing on players a lot earlier than other schools.

WHAT!!! I can forgive your first mistake but not this one! :( Now I wish Turewicz to come to USC!! :devil:

Turewicz is interesting because she is originally from the Illinois (Northwestern, Notre Dame), trained at Weil (UCLA, USC), and I believe is based in Saratoga now (Stanford, Cal). So she has a lot of connections to different schools, but could go to a completely different school.

Huh, I didn't know she's at Northern California right now. Well, just so that she stays in California :)

Incidentally I want to brag like gouci :yippee:

it's about the current 3 recruits of USC, KC,SS and De Simone.

I first attended the junior matches at Ojai, but the main event was PAC-10. (There I saw Turewicz, Heneghan, Dai, Ware..)
After NCAA I attended 107th So. Cal Sectional, purely a junior event.
And there I saw those 3 in action, and I was much impressed by them.
AND, I thought USC could recruit them.
AND, later, my wish have become true :bounce::bounce:
I was so happy that I had to tell KC about it at WAATC. :bigcry:
(USC coaches were present in nearly all major tourneys this summer, I know 'cause I was there too :cool: )
Just imagine 2 years from now;

Ramos, Lao, Pulido, Christian, De Simone, Santamaria.

doubles
Christian/Santamaria
Ramos/Lao
Pulido/De Simone

fantastic!! :woohoo:
