Corona del Mar High senior Shane Korber has made a verbal commitment to attend and play tennis at Georgetown University, he said Tuesday.
Korber, No. 40 in the United States Tennis Assn. Southern California boys' 18 singles rankings, will be the top returning player for the Sea Kings this spring. He said he was looking at East Coast schools, including some in the Ivy League.
"I wanted to go to an academic school I could play for," said Korber, who has a cumulative 4.3 grade-point average. "I liked the kids at Georgetown and the location. I love [Washington] D.C."
