It was a tough choice for the IMG Academy Bollettieri Tennis program's William Bushamuka, a five-star prospect according to TennisRecruiting.net and a top-five player from New Jersey, but the Princeton, N.J. native made his verbal commitment to the Kentucky Wildcats Men's Tennis program this week. .
"It was a tough decision, but I really liked the coaches at Kentucky and the players there, and it's a great campus, so I felt like it would be the best fit," said Bushamuka on his decision. "IMG Academy has really prepared me to be where I am now, I've improved a lot since I've been here and I wanted to take my tennis to the next level and become something more, and I've done that."
Kentucky, a perrenial top-25 program, currently sits at No. 9 in the latest ITA rankings with a 22-12 (6-6 SEC) record. Bushamuka is set to sign his National Letter of Intent next month
