Trask on Tennyson: "Joey is an intelligent and energetic player with excellent technical ability. His passing skills and dribbling ability are exceptional. He will be counted on to play out wide right away, as he has great experience as a player. He has received excellent coaching, both growing up in Milwaukee and in his high school career at Shattuck-St. Mary's. His experience of being away from home should help him in the transition to the college game."
