Bonin is one of four representatives from the Big Ten that will compete in the event, joining Peter Kobelt and Blaz Rola (Ohio State), Jared Hiltzik (Illinois), and Evan King (Michigan).
Both the singles and doubles competition will be conducted May 22-27 as the Khan Outdoor Tennis Complex/Atkins Tennis Center in Urbana, Ill. following the conclusion of the team championship.
Bonin led the Gophers from the No. 1 singles spot during the 2012-13 season, amassing a total record of 24-11 and a 9-2 mark against the tough competition in the Big Ten Conference.
