Blue Chip Commitment
Fall Signing Week '11: Mays to the Demon Deacons
Share:   

The Wake Forest Demon Deacons men's tennis team will have a new weapon in its arsenal next season.

That weapon is Blue Chip recruit Morgan Mays, a hard-hitting, aggressive, and generally pumped-up, high-energy young man who will bring fresh enthusiasm to the Winston-Salem, N.C., campus.

"I would expect us to be right in the thick of the top-10 in the country in a year or so," Morgan said. "Wake Forest, with Tony Bresky at the helm, and his great reputation as a recruiter, won't have a problem attracting good players. My expectation is that they will get two or three more good guys."

Morgan lives in Longboat Key, Fla., with his mother, Jodi. His father, J. Mays, is group vice president of design and chief creative officer of Ford Motor Co., and resides in London.

Bresky is in his first year as head coach of the Wake Forest team, a member of the extremely competitive Atlantic Coast Conference. Bresky comes to WFU from Cornell, where he guided the Big Red to their best season in program history - a 26-5 record, an Ivy League Championship, and their first-ever NCAA berth. Prior to his hiring at Cornell, Bresky was a highly successful coach at Virginia and Indiana State.

Brett Ross, a 2006 Wake Forest graduate, has been the assistant coach for the past three years. After graduation he spent his time coaching Wake Forest and playing on the ITF Circuit.

The 18-year-old Morgan (his birthday was Sept. 17) is already a veteran of the ITF Junior Circuit. He's won 18s singles and doubles titles in a number of international spots, including places such as the Dominican Republic, Curacao, and Trinidad. Morgan has also played extensively in Europe, Africa, Mexico, and South America.

He achieved an ITF ranking as high as No. 157.
