Duke men's tennis head coach Ramsey Smith has announced on Monday the signing of three of the nation's best recruits, as well as one of the top international recruits. Among this crop is Cold Spring Harbor's Josh Levine, who will join Michael Redlicki, Daniel McCall and Bruno Semenzato will join the Blue Devils for the 2012-13 season. Levine, a product of Syosset, N.Y., is also a senior blue chip recruit and currently ranked number 33 by Tennisrecruiting.net. Levine is the top-ranked player from New York, and has won three sectional championships in the last two years. He compiled a perfect 28-0 record this year at the number one singles spot for Cold Spring Harbor High School.
"This is an exciting recruiting class," Smith said. "I couldn't be happier about having Daniel, Josh, Bruno and Michael join the Blue Devil family next fall. All four have a tremendous upside, and they each bring different strengths to our program. They fit in well to the culture we have created here, and I look forward to watching them grow on and off the court at Duke."
Redlicki, a native of Chicago, is a blue chip recruit currently ranked sixth by Tennisrecruiting.net. The 6-foot-8 lefty's career highlights include sweeping the USTA National Clay Courts and USTA National Hard Courts at Kalamazoo last summer while winning an incredible 30 matches in a row on the USTA junior summer circuit.
McCall, a native of San Francisco, Calif., has been ranked in the top-10 nationally by Tennisrecruiting.net for each of the past four years. He reached an international ranking of 132nd last year while competing worldwide on the ITF circuit.
Semenzato, who hails from Sao Paulo, Brazil, is an accomplished international player who has reached an ATP World Tour ranking of 714th in singles and 612th in doubles. While competing as an amateur, he has reached the quarterfinals or better in five professional Futures singles events. Semenzato has captured two professional Futures doubles titles, and also reached the quarterfinals of the Australian Open and U.S. Open Juniors in doubles.
