Notes

The table above lists all recruits as of May 23, 2022. In addition to the Star Rating, we display the highest TRN, UTR, ITF junior, and WTT rankings for each player since January 1, 2022, and for international players we display the TRN ranking they would hold if eligible.

 

Also Receiving Consideration

We reviewed the resumes for more than 50 teams for these rankings. Teams that received strong consideration and almost made our list are (alphabetically) as follows:  Ohio Northern, Regis (MA), Trinity (CT), Trinity (TX), Whitman

 

Soaring Above

Emory University is a powerhouse in NCAA Division III Tennis. The Eagles have reached the NCAA finals 7 of the last 9 seasons, winning three titles along the way. They have won 8 national championships overall - the most recent coming in 2021.

Emily Kantrovitz is heading to Emory

Emory Head Coach Amy Bryant has had some fantastic recruiting classes along the way, posting ranked recruiting classes every season since we started ranking them in 2010. Coming into this year, Emory has had Top 10 classes in 10 of 12 seasons, earning the No. 1 overall class in 2013, 2014, and 2017.

Add 2022 to the list.

The Eagles are the only squad on our list where two recruits have achieved UTR ratings in the 9+ range, with 4-Star seniors Iris Berman (Los Angeles, Calif.) and Emily Kantrovitz (Saint Louis, Mo.) both reaching that number. 4-Star athlete Alyssa Margolin (Armonk, N.Y.), 3-Star Izabele Antanavicius (Villanova, Penn.), and international recruit Alessia Martinez of Peru complete a class that ranks No. 1 among NCAA Division III programs.

Coach Bryant will need these new Eagle recruits to contribute quickly, with only three of the Top 6 singles players returning from last year’s NCAA Elite Eight squad.

 

High Five

Competition was close at the top, with Williams College garnering support from many coaches.

The Ephs show up in the No. 2 spot on our list. 5-Star senior Anabella Siegel of Cary, N.C. has a UTR rating of 9.44 - highest among all Division III recruits. 4-Star senior Mia Thomann (Chicago, Ill.) and 3-Star athlete Jane Ladaga (North Las Vegas, Nev.) complete the three-person recruiting class for Williams Head Coach Anik Cepeda.

The Johns Hopkins Blue Jays hold down the No. 3 ranking with a deep, five-person class. 4-Star seniors Julia Xiao (Chapel Hill, N.C.) and Essence Wang (Newbury Park, Calif.) will be joined by 3-Star seniors Imani Ghosh (Germantown, Md.), Niamh Harding (Delray Beach, Fla.), and Kamila Wong (Palo Alto, Calif.) in Baltimore next Fall.

The Claremont-Mudd-Scripps Athenas and Carnegie Mellon Tartans round out your Top 5 at No. 4 and 5, respectively.

 

Conference Call

The 25 recruiting classes on our list come from 9 different conferences, with 2 conferences standing strong - the NESCAC and UAA.

The NESCAC has seven - seven! - programs in our rankings. In addition to No. 2 Williams, the conference is represented by the Wesleyan Cardinals (No. 6), Middlebury Panthers (10), Tufts Jumbos (11), Amherst Mammoths (13), Colby Mules (17), and Bowdoin Polar Bears (23).

The UAA is hot on their heels with 6 ranked classes. We have already mentioned top-ranked Emory and Carnegie Mellon (5). Other UAA classes in our rankings are the Wash U Bears (7), Chicago Maroons (9), Brandeis Judges (19), and CWRU Spartans (22).

The only other conference with more than a pair of programs on our list is the Liberty League with 3 ranked recruiting classes.
