ATHENS-----Georgia head men's tennis coach Manuel Diaz announced on Monday that four prospects have signed national letters of intent to attend UGA and play for the Bulldogs.

The group includes Casey Kay of Atlanta, Marco Nunez of Monterey, Mexico, Austin Smith of Atlanta, and Ben Wagland of New South Wales, Australia.

"I'm really excited about this group of players and what they will add to our great tradition," Diaz said. "It's one of the top - if not the top - recruiting classes we've brought in based on the level of talent and the number of quality kids coming in. We are really looking forward to getting the guys on campus and begin to develop them into better players."

Kay is the No. 3 prospect in Georgia, according to tennis reruiting.net and was ranked as high as No. 24 nationally earlier this year. He has reached the semifinals of two USTA National Opens this year.

Nunez, a left-hander, is currently ranked No. 51 in ITF Juniors, and was ranked as high as No. 42. Earlier this year he reached the semifinals of the Pan American ITF Championships and won the USTA International Hard Court title.

Smith is the top-ranked player in Georgia, according to tennisrecruiting.net, and No. 7 nationally. In April, he reached the quarterfinals of the USTA International Spring Championships. Smith won a pair of national junior championships including the 14s Hard Court Championships and Clay Court Championships.

Wagland broke into the top-50 of the Junior ITF world rankings in 2010, and the left-hander was ranked as high as No. 10 this past January. In March, Wagland reached the singles quarterfinals of the Mitsubishi-Lancer International Juniors Championships, and he was runner-up in the doubles of the Australian Open Junior Championships.
