2021 Men's Tennis Recruits

To be one of the best. It's the reason athletes compete at the NCAA Division III level. And at George Fox, athletes get the opportunity to pursue their passion for sports at a nationally ranked Christian college with a storied athletic tradition that includes both individual and team national championships.

We're excited about the quality of student-athletes who will join us for the 2021-22 academic year as we pursue our vision of being "the team to beat." In April, we hosted a virtual Commitment Day to celebrate their decision* and are proud to introduce our newest Bruins to you.
