LUBBOCK, Texas - Maxime Hinnisdaels has signed to play collegiate tennis at Texas Tech University, announced Red Raider head coach Tim Siegel.
"I am excited to bring in a quality young man like Maxime," said Siegel. "I feel like he is a part of the new energy around the program and I am excited to get started. He is the kind of hard worker that we want and that I think he has the potential to be one of the top players on our team."
He is rated Top 60 in his native Belgium. Hinnisdaels won both the singles and doubles title at the Heiveld Graydon ITF Juniors Tournament in Sint-Katelijne-Waver, Belgium last November. He has reached the semifinals of four junior events and picked up wins over Ohio State's Ille Van Engelen and Auburn's Joseph Van Doreen, while playing in Europe.
"My goal is to work hard on and off the court, to be always there for my teammates and to contribute to the success of the Texas Tech Men's Tennis Team," said Hinnisdaels. "I am extremely excited to be part of the Red Raider Family and look forward to meeting everyone who will be part of growth and development at Texas Tech as an athlete and student."
Hinnisdaels, who was ranked No. 377 in the world, was also recruited by Pepperdine, Texas A&M, Mississippi State, Auburn and Louisville before selecting Texas Tech.
"It's exciting to have a player like Maxime join our squad," said associate head coach Marcelo Ferreira. "He is a hard worker on and off the court, an exemplary student and I have no doubt he will impact our line up in singles and doubles right away."
