Spring Signing Week '13: Cardinal Direction for Lederman
Share:   

Roy Lederman didn't make the Stanford coaches work very hard to secure his commitment.

Stanford is Roy Lederman's dream school
Stanford had been Lederman's dream school since he was in the sixth grade.

The blue chip recruit from Miami didn't even need to make an official visit to the Bay Area before telling Stanford head coach John Whitlinger he wanted to join the program.

"I always thought it was the ideal school where you can get the best of both worlds - a top education with a top tennis program," Lederman said. "Stanford was my No. 1 from the beginning, and I really had my mind set on going there."

Just to be safe, Lederman covered all his bases by also sending inquiring emails to Duke and several Ivy League schools.

"My parents have always stressed education before tennis, so I did not want my education to go to waste and go to an average school," Lederman said. "I wanted tennis to help me out a little bit in getting into schools like those. But once I got an email from Coach Whitlinger saying he was excited I was interested in Stanford, my recruiting process was over."

Although Lederman committed to Stanford sight unseen, he doesn't advise other recruits to make the same decision.

"I am probably one of the only kids in a long time who just never made an official visit anywhere," Lederman said. "I actually think that was bad on my part because I didn't meet any players. I should probably go now and visit the school and meet the players. I just have to find a good time."

Lederman was born in Colombia before moving to the United States at age 5. He speaks three languages - English, French and Spanish.
