On Wednesday, high school athletes across the country signed their official letters of intent to the colleges and universities they would attend next year.
At Christopher Morley Tennis in Roslyn, two of the program’s top players, Cannon Kingsley and Neel Rajesh, made their college commitments in front of family, friends and coaches.
Kingsley will be headed to Columbus, Ohio in the fall to join the Ohio State Buckeyes.
“I’m glad it’s official,” said Kingsley. “I think Ohio State and Coach Tucker will make me a better player. The guys on the team are really committed and I’m really looking forward to the next four years of my career there.”
Rajesh will be heading to the west coast and join the Stanford Cardinal.
“I looked at a number of schools, but felt that Stanford offered the best combination of athletics and academics,” said Rajesh. “The whole history of the program at Stanford, with players like John McEnroe and the Bryan Brothers, as well as a lot of other top pros, and just the whole atmosphere of how much they care about academics as well as athletics really appealed to me.”
