Commitment Profile
Fall Signing Week '11: Kurey to the Jackets
Share:   

Megan Kurey, the 22nd-ranked senior prospect from Alpharetta, Ga., is the final commitment in Georgia Tech's highly ranked women's recruiting class.

Coach Bryan Shelton's freshmen group for 2012 includes four players with top-30 rankings among senior prospects, according to TennisRecruiting.net. They include No. 6 Catherine Harrison of Germantown, Tenn., No 23 Kendal Woodard of Stockbridge, Ga., and No. 28 Natasha Prokhnevska of Wilmington, Del.

They are expected to sign their NLIs this week. Each of them is rated among the top 30 senior prospects in the country.

"I know Kendal and Catherine, we're all from the South," Kurey said. "I don't know Natasha yet, but K & K are great girls and great players, so I'm excited about our class. I was the last one, so I knew they were going there. That was one of the deciding factors."

Kurey is a team-oriented player who could play high in the doubles lineup quickly. She considers her top achievement in junior tennis to be a doubles title with Whitney Kay in the USTA Girls 16 Super Nationals in 2009.

"She's an all-court player and one of the best doubles players in the country," said her coach, Gery Groslimond. "She has a world-class volley. I think that's the best part of her game. She's extremely competitive and a very hard worker. She's always worked harder than most of the kids."

Groslimond was Tech's men's coach when Shelton was an All-America player. Groslimond also has developed dozens of Division I prospects, including Shannon McCarthy of Georgia and NCAA doubles champion Cary Franklin of Illinois.

Kurey likes team events. She played on the USTA Southern's Fed Cup team that was runner-up this year and champion in 2010. Unlike many top juniors, she plays for her high school team at Centennial and has not lost a high school match.

"I just really like being on a team," Kurey said. "It's not as competitive, but it's really fun to get to know other girls on the team. It's a break from junior tennis. It's fun."

Kurey's junior career has taken a steady course. She began playing at age 7 and entering tournaments at 10. Her father, Ray, played at West Virginia.

Kurey also considered Vanderbilt, Alabama, Oklahoma and Notre Dame.
