Coach Jim Morris:
“The fact is Gino [DiMare] and J.D. [Arteaga] have worked very hard on this class,” Morris said. “Gino coming back as our recruiting coordinator has had a big impact. Having such a high ranking correlates to having a good team, and I’m excited about this group of guys.”
Coach Mario Rincon:
“This group joining us in the fall has the character, competitiveness, work ethic and leadership skills to continue the legacy that our current and previous student-athletes have established,” said assistant coach Mark Dickson. “Our program is attracting many of the most highly recruited student-athletes and building momentum on its way back to the top of collegiate tennis.”

It’s a really good day for the Miami Hurricanes. We’re really excited to move forward now without anything hanging over our heads.”
