BATON ROUGE -- LSU men's tennis head coach Jeff Brown announced Friday that he received two National Letters of Intent from two of the nation's elite prospects in Harrison Kennedy and Tam Trinh.
Kennedy, a native of Suwanee, Ga., is ranked No. 1 in the state of Georgia for the 18s division. He has been ranked as high as No. 6 in the southern section for the 18-year-old division singles and is considered a five-star recruit on Tennisrecruiting.net. In 2011, Kennedy captured the title at the Georgia State Closed Qualifying Championships.
Also considered a five-star recruit on Tennisrecruiting.net, Trinh ranked in the top five of the 18s division singles in his home state of Texas. In 2010, he won the gold ball by winning the boys 16 and under doubles national championship in Kalamazoo, Mich.
"These are the type of guys that you build championship teams around. They will come in and contribute immediately," Brown said. "Along with their athletic accomplishments, they are both high-character individuals who do very well in the classroom. We are very excited about this class."
The LSU men's tennis team has concluded their fall season. They will resume play on Jan. 5 at the Key Biscayne Invitational in Key Biscayne, Fla.
