Siloam Springs, Arkansas (May 25, 2012) — Brandon Laney of Clever, Mo. and Marissa Russmann of Wheaton, Ill. have committed to play men’s and women’s tennis at JBU next year.

Laney played No. 2 singles and No. 2 doubles for Clever High School, while Russmann played No. 1 singles during her junior and senior seasons at Wheaton North High School where she was awarded both DVC All-Conference and Academic All-Conference honors.
