Recruiting Feature
Fall Signing Week 2019

The wait is over. The Countdown is behind us, and Signing Week has arrived!

This Wednesday, November 13, is Signing Day - the first day that high school seniors can formally commit to Division I or Division II tennis programs by signing their National Letter of Intent. TRN and CrampsAWAY have been counting down the days for the past month, but now we switch to our Signing Week coverage.

This week is all about the seniors and college tennis recruiting. We start the week with a pair of roundup articles - including today’s Blue Chip Roundup where we take one last peek at the top senior boys and girls. Once Wednesday arrives, we celebrate the opening of the Signing Period with commitment announcements and other special content.

Check out our coverage schedule - and then get up-to-date on the Blue Chip seniors:

Keifer, who has been ranked as high as No. 16 in the senior class, has posted strong wins both nationally and internationally. Kiefer won the bronze ball in the boys’ 16 singles event at Kalamazoo in 2018, and he followed that up with 10 combined singles wins this summer in the USTA Boys 18s National Team Championships (Chattanooga) and National Championships (Kalamazoo). More recently, Kiefer has been competing in ITF events, winning a championship in October at the Cancun Junior Cup in Mexico.
