A few more international signings, Jazzi Plews (GBR) to Baylor and Camila Romero (ECU) to Oklahoma.

Nice to know Jazzi didn't completely give up tennis, disappeared for years after showing promise in 2012/2013

I'll keep updating the first post with any players people mention in the thread.

Whoever gets Gordon is very lucky, interested to see who that will be
Meh, Michaela has really fallen off. Not sure how much of a value-add she will be.

Totally forgot about Kelly Chen. Just noticed she hasn't played professionally since last October. :eek:

Just curious, does Germany have a national ranking system among their juniors? If so, where do these girls rank?

Apologies (to Lauryn if no one else) for my sloth getting in the way of posting this earlier: Women's Tennis Signs 2 International Athletes for 2017-18 - TheSunDevils.com | Arizona State University Athletics

The Arizona State women's tennis team received two international commitments on Monday, as Lauryn John-Baptiste and Saša Klanecek signed their letters of intent for the 2017-18 season.
Residing in London, England, John-Baptiste currently trains out of Gosling Tennis Academy and just recently competed at the Wimbledon Junior Championships. She's been ranked as high as 1112 in the WTA world singles rankings and 1278 in the WTA world doubles rankings. In 2015, she also earned the British U-18 National Championship in singles and doubles.
Klanecek will roll into Tempe with some pizazz to her game. The Slovenia native trains out of ŽTK Maribor, which has been rated as the best tennis club in Slovenia for well over the last decade. Klanecek is ranked as high as 1020 in the WTA world singles rankings and 1182 in the WTA world doubles rankings. In 2014, she represented Slovenia in the Junior Fed Cup competition.

UCF rising :eek:

Though playing home matches at the new USTA national campus with a team of foreigners might make for an interesting dynamic.
