Scouting Report:
Jung is looking to become the first player in Alabama history to record a third straight 20-win season. The past two years he has combined to win 45 matches.  This fall he earned his highest career ITA rankings at No. 32. Jung is an intelligent and crafty lefthander who relies on a balanced and unique all-court style to frustrate his opponents. Head coach Billy Pate says that Jung is naturally gifted with soft hands and frequently surprises his opponents with a soft touch and difficult angles around the net. Deceptively quick, Jung has the ability to thread the needle with a powerful passing game and a wonderful use of spring and control that demonstrates the rare tactic of dramatically changing the speed of his shots during rallies.
