College Commitment
Spring Signing Week '10: Ariel Morton goes Tiger
Share:   

Ariel Morton of Spring, Texas, is one of the hardest hitters in junior tennis despite her diminutive size - 5-foot-4 and 108 pounds.

"I don't realize I'm small," Morton said. "Most people have to tell me."

Ranked No. 43 nationally among high school seniors, Morton signed in November with LSU after what she called an "extremely stressful" recruiting process.

This week, Morton talked with Todd Holcomb of TennisRecruiting.net about some of the things that make her a little different.

For example, Morton is independent, often traveling to tournaments without a parent or a coach. She also loves high school tennis and considers doubles the most fun part of the sport. Morton and partner Micah Hermsdorf, representing Klein High School, will defend their Class 5A state title in doubles this month

Here's what Morton had to say about...

 

High school tennis: It seems like lately more people are into high school tennis in Texas, especially in New Braunfels with John Newcombe's academy. I just like the environment of high school tennis, being on a team, supporting my team. I also like doubles a lot. That's the most fun part about tennis.
