Commitment Announcement
Britton Bolsters Ole Miss for Dual Season

The University of Mississippi is currently ranked No. 9 in the country and has the nation's top-ranked doubles team in Jonas Berg and Bram ten Berge. But the Rebels bolstered their roster considerably for the 2009 season when blue chip recruit Devin Britton received the necessary NCAA clearances to join the team for the spring semester.

For the native of Jackson, Mississippi, the college path always led straight to Oxford. There were no other official or unofficial visits, and although introductions to his teammates, all from outside the U.S., have only recently been made, Britton sees Ole Miss as the ideal spot for a variety of reasons.

"It's a good option for me. It's about two and a half hours from home - not too close, but not too far, and it's in the SEC, which is where I wanted to be. It's a tough conference," Britton says, continuing with his list.

"I like the weather here - it's hot most of the year, which is good. I definitely couldn't have gone up north. They have a really good tennis program, I like the facilities and I like the coach (Billy Chadwick). He's a really nice guy and he should help me improve in the next couple of years, so I can go on the pro tour."

After Britton made a magical run to the finals of the U.S. Open Junior Championships as a qualifier last September, there was speculation the fifth-ranked player in the Tennis Recruiting Network's class of 2009 might shelve his college plans. But his game style and his two ATP ranking points convinced him that college was the best option - and the sooner, the better.
