ATLANTA – Vikram Hundal of Chattahoochee High School in Alpharetta, Ga., a five-star player according to the Tennis Recruiting Network, has signed a letter-of-intent to play at Georgia Tech, head coach Kenny Thorne announced Monday.
Hundal is ranked 30th nationally in the class of 2011 according to the website, No. 11 in the Southeastern United States and third in the state of Georgia. He has ranked as high as 28th in the Tennis Recruiting Network, and No. 35 in TennisRPI. Hundal attained number one USTA Southern Sections ranking in all age groups. In 2007, he was recognized as the junior male player of Georgia by USTA Georgia, and in 2009 he received the Janet Lauer sportsmanship award, given to only one tennis player each year.
“We are excited about Vikram’s signing and joining our program,” said Thorne. “Vikram has been one of the best junior players in Georgia throughout all of the age divisions. He is a good student and good fit for our program. I look forward to him helping our team this coming season in both singles and doubles.”
He has posted a 35-15 overall record since the beginning of July, 2010, 9-4 vs. five-star players. He reached the round of 16 at the USTA National Open in May, and the quarterfinals of the USTA National Spring Championship.
Hundal played four years of varsity tennis at Chattahoochee High School, losing only three matches during that time and going undefeated (16-0) as a senior. He helped Chattahoochee to the AAAA quarterfinals in 2011, the team’s best finish in Hundal’s four years.
