Fall Signing Week '08: Rigsby a Tiger
For Zachary Rigsby, the road to Clemson University began on a hot summer day eight years ago. That was the first time the five-star recruit from Simpsonville, S.C., walked onto the courts at the Hoke Sloan Tennis Center for a summer camp. He was 10 years old, and it marked the beginning of a summer tradition. Over time, Rigsby forged strong bonds with Clemson coaches and players. This week, he will sign with the Tigers tennis program for Fall 2009.

Countdown: Metzger Chooses the Ducks
Five-star recruit Julia Metzger had her eye on the Pacific-10 Conference when she started hunting for a college tennis home last year. So when Oregon Coach Paul Reber recently phoned with a scholarship offer, the 17-year-old from the shores of Lake Erie didn't have to think long.

Spring Signing Week '08: Ryan Ybarra Announces
Five-star recruit Ryan Ybarra had already turned down scholarship offers to schools in California and South Carolina when he drew interest from the University of North Carolina Wilmington. The teenager from the piney woods of East Texas confesses that he didn't know much about the school, but he fired off an email to head coach Mait DuBois, and a trip was arranged.

Spring Signing Week '08: Klores an Aggie
Growing up in the tiny east Texas town of Franklin, just 30 minutes from Texas A&M University, Austin Klores was always an Aggie at heart. As a rising Texas junior player, he watched countless Aggie tennis matches at the George P. Mitchell Tennis Center. Those matches had burned a deep impression in the teenager's brain, and so Klores signed a national letter of intent to play for A&M next August.

Countdown: Five-Star Turpin Heads to College Station
Ashley Turpin was born into a storied Texas tennis family, the granddaughter and daughter of top college players. Now, the gutsy 17-year-old is poised to write her own college tennis chapter - at Texas A&M University. After signing a letter of intent last fall to play for the Aggies, the five-star recruit from New Braunfels, Tex., now bubbles with excitement when she talks about joining the squad at College Station next August.

Caledonia Heads for the Ocean
When four-star recruit Nicholas (Nick) Caledonia arranged an official visit to the University of California-Santa Barbara last month, Coach Marty Davis made an unusual request: "Bring your wet suit." After a visit that included surfing in the Pacific, Caledonia made a verbal commitment to play for the Gauchos.

Countdown: Wilson a Boilermaker
Thomas Wilson had dreamed about the moment for years, but the five-star recruit was caught off guard earlier this month when Purdue offered him a spot. He took time to think it over. But the more he thought, the clearer the decision became.
