National Junior Tennis Conference; SI's Seth Davis Agrees with Me on NLIs

Mark Bey's 11th annual National Junior Tennis Conference is this weekend, and although I'm not attending, Marcia Frost will be, so watch collegeandjuniortennis.com for a report. I did receive the information on the conference today, so if you are in the Chicago area this weekend and have a junior tennis player who wants to play college tennis, it would be a very valuable use of your time. For the overview, click here for the individual seminar schedule, click here, and for the junior training camp schedule, click here.

The signing announcements are continue to come in, with Nadja Gilchrist, the No. 1 girls blue chip in the class of 2008 according to The Tennis Recruiting Network, signing with Georgia. The announcement from georgiadogs.com is here. USC announced Alison Ramos's signing today here.

Sports Illustrated basketball expert Seth Davis has written a column that addresses many of the same points I made yesterday about the National Letter of Intent. Although his sport is basketball, it applies equally to tennis.

This kid lied about his age and got caught. I'm not sure why that wouldn't get posted. It is a fact.
