John Whitlinger & David Hodge Say: "KC is as good as anyone in the nation. He's already won a doubles championship (with Sam Warburg) and is capable of winning a singles championship as well. He's an extremely smart player that has very quick feet and a very competitive nature. He played extremely well in amateur and futures tours in the off-season and we expect great things from him this year."
