"Niall Angus is a junior from London, England, and he is a
very experienced international player who brings quality depth to our lineup.
Niall had a very good sophomore season winning a lot of tough matches against
nationally-ranked opponents. His strengths in his game are his serve and
athleticism. Niall can get to just about any ball and has really developed into
a very solid all-court player that can defend well, but also attack when given
the opportunity. The consummate team player, Niall is very popular among his
teammates. I look for Niall to raise his level this spring and win a lot of big
matches for the Aggies." - Aggie Head Coach Steve Denton
