NORMAL, Ill. - Illinois State men's tennis head coach Cris James announced the signing of Jakub Eisner from Kladno, Czech and Rolondo Torrellas from Barquisimeto, Venezuela for the spring 2013 season.

The two players will join recent recruit Dylan Steffens for the Redbirds.

"We are excited to add Rolondo and Jakub to our team. Both of them have a good deal of international experience and both have some high end results that suggest they can be very good college players," said James. "Both are also big guys with powerful games which gives them a lot of potential as well."

Among many career accomplishments, Torrellas has four wins over players who have been ranked in the top 70 in the ITF world junior rankings, and was ranked No. one in Venezuela in the 10's, 12's and 14's. Eisner was consistently ranked by the ETA and won in doubles action at the Czech Championship.

"We are excited to see what they can accomplish for the Birds'," said James. "Both JP and I are excited to work with them. They will definitely help our team right away and into the future."
