Men's Tennis Signs Diaz to National Letter of Intent

Stockton, Calif. - Director of Tennis and head men's tennis coach Ryan Redondo announced the signing of Miguel Diaz to a national letter of intent to join the Pacific men's tennis squad for the 2013-14 season.

Diaz, a 5-6 senior at Castro Valley High School in California, is a five-star recruit according to TennisRecruiting.net. He is currently rated 58 in the US in his class.

"I am very excited and happy about Miguel Diaz joining the Pacific Tiger family," Redondo said. "It has been a goal of mine to continue to recruit the top northern California players.  Having Miguel join our program specifically is very promising. He is exactly the kind of person and player I want to surround and build this team with.  He is very goal oriented, intelligent, and has a strong desire to continue to improve and learn.  He packs a big punch on every shot he hits and is extremely agile and quick.  He and his coach have done a great job.  Pacific and college tennis are going to bring the best out of him."

Diaz placed second in two of his last three tournaments in northern California, holds two victories over blue chip recruits and an overall record of 47-13 this year.

Diaz will continue his individual national tournament schedule as well as play high school tennis before joining the Tigers in the fall of 2013.
