The Temecula Valley High School baseball program has a big group of seniors that will be playing at the next level in college.

Many of the area's high school student athletes took part in National Letter of Intent signing day ceremonies recently as they got recognized for committing to play sports and further their educations at the next level.

National Signing Day is the first day that a high school senior can sign a binding National Letter of Intent (NLI) with an NCAA, NCCAA or NAIA college, committing in writing to attend that school in exchange for a commitment from the school to receive financial aid (scholarship).

Here is a look at the colleges and universities to which some of the area athletes will be reportedly taking their talents. Last week the Valley News covered Murrieta Mesa and Chaparral and this week Great Oak, Temecula Valley and Vista Murrieta submitted names. If you know of a student athlete that is playing at the next level and did not get recognized in the paper, please send more info to [email protected]
