Anyone have an intel on Raveena Kingsley? I was hoping she'd end up at Stanford, but unless Carol (unwisely) decides to go pro, Emily took the last scholarship, so there isn't one left for Raveena.

For the record, I'll happily take Emily though!

Honestly, don't know why she hasn't officially already.
It's not like she needs a scholarship or financial aid.

The best thing for Carol is to finish college and get her degree from Stanford. At best she's a Top 150 player, which is a tough way to earn a living on the tour.

According to TRN, Raveena just committed to LSU, which has 3 solid blue chips in its 2016-2017 recruiting class. Interesting...

Don't look at me??? LSU has had 2 Blue Chip recruits TOTAL in the past 12 years and this year they have recruited 3!!!

LSU's coaches must be really SELLing their program at twice the pace of most coaches...

Easy enough, surely, when they have twice as many head coaches as most program(me)s.

Plus they have a new tennis facility: https://www.lsutaf.org/LSUTennisFacility. Not sure it has a name yet, so if you're an alumnus/alumna with the odd million you don't know what to do with, perhaps it could be yours.

Q&A with Raveena Kingsley - Colette Lewis - The Tennis Recruiting Network
Quote:
CL: When did you decide to commit to LSU?

RK: That was after the 25s in South Carolina. That's like a backup.


CL: Did you visit Baton Rouge?

RK: No, I haven't been there.

Not sure if she's the one you want to get from that class. Kenin, McKenzie, Swan, Day, Dolehide, Gordon, Arconada, Chen...

Emma's not a bad player though.

Exactly. I am hoping Kenin out of that bunch chooses UF since her best bud and usual doubles partner Ingrid will be going there. Not sure if UF will take up on Emma's commitment... how does that work lol?

Re: 2016-17 verbals, high interest & transfers

Anybody know anything about Kayla Day?

The Card Killer defeated both Ahn and Zhao in the 25k Surprise in AZ earlier this week.

Impressive!

She's good! Lefty with nice serve and good power. She hits a nice forehand with topspin and can flatten it. She hits a nice flat backhand. She's a CA girl, so hopefully she stays in CA for college...hopefully at the college she lives the closest to
