WARREN, NJ - Two Watchung Hills Regional High School athletes upgraded their status from recruits to official signees to the college/university of their choice on early National Letter of Intent (NLI) Signing Day this week.
Surrounded by their families and coaches Joe Tremarco and Joe Ascolese, the students put pen to paper and signed their official NLI commitment letters to play baseball.
And they are:
Mike Murray- Hofstra University
Tyler Riley - University of Maine
“Just so happy and proud for them and their families!” said WHRHS Baseball Head Coach Joe Tremarco. “It couldn’t have happened to two harder working kids and I wish them the best! .....After we get after it in the Spring!”
According to the National Letter of Intent website, the NLI only apply to prospective student-athletes attending full-time at a four-year college or university for the first time. The NLI is a binding agreement between a prospective student-athlete and an NLI member institution whereas the prospective student-athlete agrees to attend the institution full-time for one academic year (two semesters or three quarters). In return, the institution agrees to provide athletics financial aid for one academic year (two semesters or three quarters).
