Johnson C. Smith has added three tennis recruits to next year’s teams.

Sharif Ashan Axam and Yusuf Issac Barnes will play on the men’s team while Jasmine Riddick will join the women's team.

Axam is a graduate of Benjamin E. Mays High in Atlanta and competed as the number one ranked player on the varsity squad.

Barnes is a graduate of Rouse High in Leander, Texas. He has shown commitment to improving as a player by participating in USTA tournaments. “I am nowhere near my full potential and I am very teachable,” he said.

Riddick, a senior at Southwest DeKalb High in Atlanta, was selected Miss Tennis and captain of the tennis team during her final season.

“I am very happy to have these rising stars as members of the Golden Bulls tennis team,” Cuthbertson said. “They will join the stars we already have and hopefully help us progress and get our program back to the top of our conference.”

The women (12-13, 11-5 CIAA) advanced to the semifinals of the conference tournament. The men went 3-22 overall and 3-11 in the CIAA.

Both teams will be looking to open the 2012-13 season at home against Catawba College. Match play is scheduled to begin Sept. 27 at JCSU.
