CLEMSON, SC – Clemson head women’s tennis coach Nancy Harris has announced that Keri Wong, a Blue Chip recruit out of Jackson, MS, has signed a National Letter of Intent to join the Tiger program for the fall of 2008.

“We are so excited to have Keri join our Clemson Tigers,” Harris said. “She is a great young woman and a great young talent. Clemson is a special place for special people and there is no doubt she fits in this category. We are delighted to have Keri in our Clemson family and are excited about our current and future teams.”

In the 2008 recruiting class, Wong has been ranked as high as #6 in the nation by tennisrecruiting.net and is currently listed 13th, while ranking as the #5 junior player in the southeast. She is also listed at #10 in the USTA Girls 18 rankings, which includes nearly 2,000 junior players. Wong is the highest rated American player to sign with Clemson under Harris, who is now in her 11th season at the helm of the Tiger program.

Wong owns a 55-17 overall record with 13 victories over elite Blue Chip players. She won the USTA Interscholastic East tournament title last May, dropping just one set in six matches of the event. So far in 2007, she reached the semifinals of two other USTA-sponsored tournaments, while advancing to the title match of a third.
