2016 SIGNING CLASS NATIONALLY RANKED: For the first time in program history, Boise State women’s tennis has a recruiting class ranked in the nation’s top 25. According to a media poll taken by TennisRecruiting.net, Boise State’s incoming class is tied for 25th-best in the country. The deep Bronco class is led by five-star prospect Lilian Poling of West Point, N.Y. Poling owns a 10.32 rating in the Universal Tennis Rating System. Wilhelmina Palmer of Sweden ranks No. 458 in the ITF World Junior Rankings and owns a 10.57 UTR rating, the highest of Boise State’s three signees. Four-star recruit Jovana Kuljanin of Murrieta, Calif., boasts a 9.17 UTR score. In college tennis, the “power conferences” are referred to as the five traditional resource conferences plus the Ivy League. Boise State was one of two schools from outside those six leagues to crack the recruiting rankings. The Broncos were joined William & Mary (Colonial Athletic Association; No. 21) as the only non-power-conference entries in the top 25. Boise State was the only Mountain West team to receive a vote in the poll.
