Dick Gould & John Whitlinger Say: "Ryan is a threat to win a national championship. He was slowed by an injury last year. His health and continued improvement are keys to our team's success. Ryan is a serve and volley and attacking style player who has learned to play with a little more feel for the point from the backcourt. He is perhaps the best doubles player on the team. Because he was ahead in his studies, he was able to take the fall quarter off and play at the professional level."
