The Gators star freshman collects another accolade for his efforts in his debut season in Orange and Blue.


GAINESVILLE, Fla. – The Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) announced the 2024 ITA Division I Men’s Regional Award recipients. Gator freshman Jeremy Jin was selected as the Rookie of the Year in the Southeast Region.

The Division I Playing Awards include: Wilson ITA Coach of the Year, ITA Assistant Coach of the Year, Arthur Ashe Leadership & Sportsmanship, ITA Rafael Osuna Sportsmanship, ITA Rookie of the Year, ITA Player to Watch, ITA Most Improved Player, ITA Senior Player of the Year, and ITA Community Service Award.


Jin, a native of Australia, slotted into the court one singles position for Florida for all 14 of the Gators’ matches against SEC opponents this season. Jin started his dual season hot, holding a 6-1 record in singles matches after the opening weekend of conference play.


Jin was named SEC Freshman of the Week for his efforts during that first weekend of conference play, with victories against current No. 23-ranked Raphael Perot of Texas A&M and 5th-year senior Stefan Latinovic of LSU. Jin collected five ranked wins in his first dual season, the highest of which came on March 17, when Jin defeated then-No. 46 Filip Planinsek of Alabama, who would go on to take home the 2024 NCAA Individual Singles Championship. Jin currently sits at the No. 54 singles ranking per ITA, with his season-high rank set at No. 52.
