Re: 2013-14 recruiting - "speculation only"

Stanford seems to be a bit of stretch for me on Alyssa. She still regularly plays high school tennis and doesn't seem to be Krista-caliber, even if she did go deep into Eddie Herr. USC seems more likely too but IIRC Alyssa did take recruiting trips to Duke and UNC.

Alyssa Smith just announced on Facebook last night that she committed to Duke.

This one surprised me since Duke only has one scholarship for her year and I would say 99% of the people I talked to thought that Allie Kiick was going to Duke.

Well Duke coaches did watch Alyssa vs Sam Cons. match on the last day of the National; Duke, UVA, USC coaches were 'the last men standing.'

Re: 2013-14 recruiting - "speculation only"

Oh yay!

Alyssa is a good get for Duke.

I've always thought Kiick would turn professional, if not, just stay in Florida with UF.

Re: 2013-14 recruiting - "speculation only"

It's hard picturing any of the FL Blue Chip players going to Stanford. Taylor Davidson, maybe but is it official? Maybe someone from NY or NJ. My guess is good as anybody.

Taylor Davidson (she announced on Facebook) and I'm hearing Caroline Doyle (who's graduating a year early)

Those two and Carol Zhao, makes 3. Tan and Dillon are seniors. I am guessing the Cards are anticipating that Gibbs is going to turn pro.

This year-Gibbs/Hardebeck/Tan/Ahn/Tsay/Kostas or Dillon
Next year-Hardebeck/Ahn/Tsay/Zhao/Davidson/Doyle or Kostas

I have to think that Gibbs wants to win a championship before leaving the Farm.
At least Mal got hers during her freshman year. I can't think of that many Cards, who didn't go to the White House during their four years at Stanford.

Is Chi going to be given enough playing time?

Isn't Kostas a walk-on? So couldn't Stanford add all 3 even if Gibbs stayed?

I would be interested to know how the scholarship really works. All I know is that they get 8 headcount scholarships. If Kostas is a walk-on, then technically they can add all 3. This year they would be using 7 and next year 8.

I don't know how it works with Mal gone. I assume it frees up one, but what happens if she goes back to school, like when Granville went back? I heard they still get a free ride, but where does that scholarship come from?

Now did Kostas get an academic scholarship? She did win that Rotarian award, but I doubt that might just cover the cost of her books.

My guess is that Cal is going to go Susanyi, Schutting, Fabikova, Davis, Goransson, Chi. I think Fabikova might start a little lower but I think she has the potential to play high in the line-up.

Chi is better than Duranteau/Estlander. Estlander has seemed to regressed/stagnated a bit.

Re: 2013-14 recruiting - "speculation only"

Stanford has seven on scholarship right now. Two graduating scholarship players in Tan and Dillon and then the freed up Burdette scholarship. That's why they can offer three this coming year.

My source and my own reading tells me that its not true that if the players come back, that they get a free ride. I believe that as discussed on a Duke thread it would violate NCAA rules.

I do believe it works like this, Stanford, Duke degrees are from well respected prominent schools are worth a lot of money, even if the person pays some tuition. Its worth it for a player to start at one of these schools, even if they go professional during their term, because the school will take them back as a student. Plus both schools have large financial endowments, so that normal financial need based scholarships can be quite comprehensive for athletes and non-athletes. And finally, if the player comes back to school after 25 years old, (with some alternative twists), then its just their own income and assets that count for financial aid. But, correct me if I'm wrong...
