Arizona men’s tennis head coach Clancy Shields’ recruiting class for the 2018 season has been ranked 18th in the nation by tennisrecruiting.net.

“I am excited we were recognized with a top-20 recruiting class,” said Shields. “I believe we found the right players for our program. They are hardworking, high character guys who love challenges and have a ‘can-do’ attitude. I believe they will challenge our returning players and elevate our program forward in a big way.”

Thus far, Shields has inked four student athletes: Carlos Hassey, a five-star recruit and two time state champion out of Surprise Arizona, Igor Karpovets who has been ranked as high as 2 in the junior division in his home country of Ukraine, Aaro Pollanen a top 150 ITF Junior, and transfer junior Jonas Maier who put together two impressive seasons playing at Utah State.
