University of Minnesota men’s tennis head coach Geoff Young announced the signing of Felix Corwin to a National Letter of Intent Thursday morning. Corwin, who attends Brookfield East High School in Wisconsin, will join the Gophers as a freshman for the 2014-15 season.
“I am so excited for Felix to be joining our program,” said Young. “He has the desire, character, and skills necessary to be a model student athlete.”
A three-time varsity letterwinner for the Spartans, Corwin is the top-ranked player in the state of Wisconsin and is No. 4 in the Midwest Section. He won the Wisconsin state singles title in 2013 as a junior and was a runner up as a sophomore in 2012. He also claimed the 2012 USTA National Open 18s championship in St. Louis, Mo.
Corwin has served as a team captain for the past two seasons and has been a WIAA State Tournament qualifier and Team MVP three times.
The No. 36 senior recruit in the nation according to tennisrecruiting.net, Corwin was a member of the championship-winning 2013 Midwest National Team.
The Brookfield, Wis. native has maintained a 3.6 GPA throughout high school and is an honor roll student. He is also a member of Brookfield East’s Interact Club, which participates in numerous community service opportunities throughout the year.
Corwin comes from a family of tennis players. His brother, Tim, is currently a freshman at DePaul and his father, Timon, played tennis at Kalamazoo College in Michigan. Additionally, his cousin, Anik Cepeda, played tennis at William & Mary.
“I think it's a perfect fit, and look for him to help take us to the highest level of college tennis,” Young added. “He is tall, athletic, and has weapons in his game that will allow him to develop into a great college player.”
