NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Yale has announced two recruits for the Class of 2015 as part of the 14th-highest ranked recruiting class in the nation according to tennisrecruiting.net. Yale will add blue chipper Hanna Yu and five-star Amber Li to its roster next year.

Yu hails from Northbrook, Ill., and is currently ranked No. 29 in the nation. She reached her highest ranking for the 2010-11 season in May, at No. 17. Li, from Tampa, Fla., is currently ranked No. 42 in the nation, achieving a high of No. 31 in February of 2010.

Yale's recruiting class is the second highest in the Ivy League, trailing only Brown at No. 11.

"I'm really excited about Hanna and Amber joining our team next year.  They're both extremely talented players, hard workers and great individuals who will help our team continue to make strides in the next several years," said head coach Danielle McNamara.

This marks Yale's third straight recruiting class ranked in the top 15 in the nation, including last year's No. 8 class, which marked Yale's all-time highest ranked recruiting class.
