Top Utah tennis player and Top 25 Californian player signed to play for the BYU tennis team.
Brocton Andrus of Lone Peak High in Alpine, Utah, and Garret Vincent of Alisa Nigel High School in Aliso Viejo, California, are top tennis recruits sure to have an impact on Cougar tennis.
“We’re excited to have Garret and Brocton join our team,” Men’s tennis coach Brad Pearce said in a press release. “They will be incredible assets and both will bring different strengths of play to the team. We are looking forward to them joining us next year.”
Andrus has a current world ranking of 191 in the Under-18 division. He was the No. 1 ranked junior tennis player in the state of Utah in 2013 and 2014. His work ethic and determination has helped him rise in the rankings.
“I started playing tennis at 13 and playing tennis for BYU was always my goal. It’s a dream come true that it actually happened,” Andrus said on signing day.
Vincent has been in the Top 25 for Southern California in the juniors division throughout his high school career. Father Blair Vincent was a nationally ranked junior tennis player who played collegiate tennis for UC-Riverside. Vincent went undefeated in high school play in 2014 and won high school district. He also won back-draw at the national Open Boys 18’s in Arizona in 2015.
“BYU was my first choice of where I wanted to play and now that it’s actually happened, it’s amazing. It feels great accomplishing this dream,” Vincent said.
Both Andrus and Vincent will be joining the Cougar tennis team in the fall of 2016.
