Today marks the first day for high school athletes to put pen to paper and make their college choices official. Among others, two local athletes signed to play their sport at Division 1 Universities. Ricky Jacquez from Franklin High School will attend the University of Texas-Austin to play shortstop and pitcher for their powerhouse baseball program while Kiera Clark from Andress High School became a University of Arkansas-Little Rock Trojan to play basketball.
Both UTEP men's and women's basketball programs added student-athletes to their 2011 class. The men received 6 of their expected 8 letters today and expect more later this week while Keitha Adams added two to her squad.
