MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - Middle Tennessee has signed Knoxville's Brandon Allan to a national letter-of-intent this week, as announced by MT men's tennis coach Dale Short.

Allan, who attends Bearden High School in Knoxville, is the top-ranked junior in the state in Tennessee this year and won the Tennessee State Qualifying Tournament in June. He also won the Southern Boys 18 Doubles title this past summer, and has 20 USTA singles and doubles championships to his name. Allan is ranked in the Top 25 in the South in singles and is a member of the National Honor Society at Bearden High School.

"Brandon is an excellent addition to our tennis program. He brings in a tremendous amount of potential with excellent physical ability," Short said. "Brandon certainly has the ability to make an immediate impact on the Blue Raider tennis program.

"Brandon, along with Greg Pollack of Memphis and Murfreesboro's Trevor Short, give us three of Tennessee's top juniors over the past couple of years."

MT opens the spring campaign in January at the University of Hawaii on the 18th. The home opener will be January 26 against Louisville.
