Utah State Men's Tennis Adds Third Signee to 2014 Roster
May 6, 2014
LOGAN, Utah - Utah State men's tennis has added Jaime Barajas to its 2014-15 roster, as it was announced Tuesday by head coach Clancy Shields.
"I'm really excited to welcome Jaime to the Aggie family. He is not only a great player but he encompasses all the things we look for in a student-athlete," Shields said. "Jaime has improved tremendously over the past few years, and I believe that this is only the tip of the iceberg in terms of his potential. Jaime has a bright future and will definitely make a big impact in our program."
Barajas is a native of Woodland Hills, Calif., where he competed at El Camino Real Charter High School. He is currently ranked at No. 196 nationally, with an RPI ranking of 129. He won the Los Angeles CIF singles as a prep senior, leading his team to the finals.
"One of the many reasons why I chose Utah State was because of the foundation that Coach Shields discussed which incorporated a team concept, dedication, hard work and taking his team to the next level," Barajas said.
Barajas joins Andrew Nakajima and Avery West in the 2014-15 class.
Utah State concluded its season at the MW Tennis Tournament where the Aggies fell to eventual tournament champions, #25 Boise State, in the quarterfinals.
