Taking It to the Next Level - At least 25 Colorado high school seniors set to play college golf

Posted on February 05, 2016

College letters of intent were certainly in the news this week, largely because Wednesday marked the first day Class of 2016 high school football players could sign on the dotted line.

While the equivalent day for golf was in November -- when many Colorado players formalized their college plans -- there have been numerous additional commitments in recent months, so it's worth an update.

At least 25 Colorado high school players have now committed to play golf in college. That includes at least 11 at the NCAA Division I level, including Regis Jesuit's Andrew McCormick (pictured), who recently noted on Twitter that he was headed to Creighton. Last year, McCormick was runner-up in the CGA Junior Match Play and tied for third in the 5A state high school meet while his school claimed the team title.
