Nov. 16, 2013
FORT WORTH, Texas - TCU men's tennis coach David Roditi has announced the signing of Trevor Johnson of Las Vegas, Nev. to a National Letter of Intent.
"We are extremely excited to welcome Trevor into our TCU tennis family. He is exactly the person, player and athlete we want in our team," Roditi says. "He's been well coached and he's as hungry for success as any player out there. Like Nick Chappell, Trevor could have picked any school in the country and for that we are humbly proud. We look for him to make an immediate impact in our team"
Johnson is a blue chip recruit who is ranked as the No. 1 recruit in the state of Nevada and No. 14 nationally. He is ranked in the top 20 in the nation for junior players with a record of 50-17 and is also highly ranked in the ITF Pro Circuits. Johnson competed for the USTA Boy's 18 National Team in multiple tournaments, while also reaching the finals in several USTA Regional Tournaments.
Johnson has already faced many current and future Big 12 opponents and defeated the top recruit at Texas, George Goldhoff, in the quarterfinals of the USTA Boy's 18 Hardcourt Super Nationals in Kalamazoo, Mich. this past summer.
For the last two years, Johnson competed at Palo Verde High School where he was crowned the Nevada singles champion in 2012 and garnered All-State honors, while his team earned runner-up titles in 2012 and 2013.
Johnson currently trains under the direction of former UNLV player Henner Nehles at the Darling Tennis Center in Las Vegas.
