Nov. 16, 2016

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- University of Michigan men's tennis head coach Adam Steinberg announced on Wednesday (Nov. 16) the signing of Teddy Oosterbaan to a National Letter of Intent to join the Wolverines for the 2017-18 academic year.

"We are extremely excited about having Teddy join our program," Steinberg said. "Teddy has a long history of Wolverines in his family and it's always special to bring in a young man from the great state of Michigan. He is a person of outstanding character who will have an immediate and positive impact on our tennis program." 

Oosterbaan is a four-star recruit from Kalamazoo, where he attends Hackett Catholic Prep and has earned all-state honors in tennis. He won the Lower Peninsula Division 4 No. 2 singles championship match in 2013 with a 24-1 record. He also teamed up with Martin Joyce to win the 18U doubles title at the 2013 USTA Midwest Level 1 Outdoor Championships

Listed at 6-7, Oosterbaan also plays basketball in high school and helped his team to a regional championship last season. His father, J.P., played basketball at Michigan and was a member of the 1989 national championship team as part of the legendary Oosterbaan family legacy at U-M. His brother, Paul, also plays tennis at Georgia.

Michigan will lose the three-member senior class of Kevin Wong, Tyler Gardiner and Jathan Malik following this season.
