UVA Recruit Justin Shane Headlines 2010 Class
More than 50 Mid-Atlantic Recruits Have Committed to Play Next Year
Tennis fans in the Mid-Atlantic region will have a lot to root for this upcoming school year, as many local Class of 2010 graduates will be playing for colleges across the country. Leading the recruiting class is Justin Shane, a blue chip recruit from Falls Church, VA, who has signed a National Letter of Intent to play for the University of Virginia.
Shane, who is the No. 7 overall recruit by tennisrecruiting.net, played for Jeb Stuart High School and claimed the 2009 Virginia AAA Singles Championship. Shane has also won several USTA Boys 18 National Opens and was the No. 3 ranked Mid-Atlantic Boys’ 18 player last year, behind only internationally ranked Denis Kudla and Junior Ore.
While Shane chose to stay close to home, fans and family members will have to travel a bit further to root for other Mid-Atlantic recruits. This includes 5-star recruit John Kelly of Owings Mills, MD, who is taking his talents to Dartmouth College in New Hampshire.
Rounding out the top boy recruits are 4-star Kevin Castellow of Burke, VA, who will be playing at Virginia Tech and 4-star James Davis of Manassas, VA, who will be at Longwood.
On the girls’ side, 5-star recruit Natalie Blosser of Arlington, VA, leads the way and will be playing for Harvard next year. Joining Shane at UVA is 4-star recruit Marjorie Baker of Washington, DC.
Other notable girls include 4-star Alexandra Bush of Vienna, WV, who has committed to play for Cleveland State, 4-star Gabrielle Devlin of McLean, VA, who will be at Amherst, and 4-star Katelyn Stokes of Lanham, MD, who will be staying local at Howard University.
And as the Mid-Atlantic Class of 2010 begins its next tennis chapter, look out for these young, talented players to journey into record books at their respective schools.
