Men's Tennis Signs a Trio of Recruits
Nov. 23, 2007
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Head Coach Randy Bloemendaal has added three student-athletes to his roster the 2008-09 Hoosier men's tennis season. Jeremy Langer, Jonathan Schroeder and Stephen Vogl will be arriving in Bloomington for next season.
Langer is a left-handed, serve-and-volley player haling from Canada. He recently won the national indoor championship in Canada and has been ranked as high as No. 3 nationally.
"Jeremy is a lefty who is a solid all-court player with a passion for serve and volley," said Bloemendaal. "He has proven to be one of the very best doubles and singles players in juniors for Canada. If Jeremy continues to work hard and get better in the next few months he could come in his first year and do very well in the Big Ten."
Schroeder is a four-star recruit from Winnetka, Illinois. He is the fourth-ranked player in Illinois and lasted eight rounds at the Midwest. He also won two matches at the June National Open in St. Louis.
"Jonathan has solid ground strokes with a very good backhand," said Bloemendaal. "His best days on the tennis courts lie in front of him. He is a big, strong kid with a lot of up side."
Vogl is also a four-star recruit and a product of the Stamford Indoor Tennis Academy. He is the No. 2-ranked player in Connecticut and the fourth rated player in all of New England.
"Stephen is going to be able to contribute immediately in doubles and his aggressive game style will be conducive to much of the indoor play we have in the Big Ten," said Bloemendaal. In February, he won five rounds at the National Open.
"All three players are not just good players who are going to impact our program on the court; they are the right guys for our program and each of them will impact the team as much outside of the court as they will on match day:
