El Paso, TX — National Signing Day is an annual event for college fans and athletes. Most of the attention goes to football, but most sports will sign their athletes to letters of intent to attend their college or university. Sometimes, athletes change their minds and decide to sign to a university which they did not verbally commit to. This happens a lot, too much for some... but what about the local athletes?
Andress receiver Eddie Sinegal had 52 receptions last season for 1,086 yards and nine touchdowns. Sinegal made a name for himself his junior season with 63 receptions for 1,288 yards and 13 touchdowns. Eddie verbally committed to UTEP, and it sounds like he will stick with it.
"I took the visit and was completely blown away by everything that they had there, and ultimately thought it was the best choice for me. To be in town and playing for the hometown team, it's big. They're looking for big things out of me, and they have high expectations for me, and I just want to achieve those."
National signing day is wednesday, February 4th. Most high schools around the city and in Las Cruces will hold signing day parties in the afternoon, please keep in tuned in to KTSM and KTSM.com for all the latest!
