Jessie Fontes, a 13-year-old softball pitcher from Fillmore, Calif., is still deciding on where she’ll attend high school next year.
But she already has her college choice. The eighth-grader committed to Arizona a few weeks ago, according to her father.
“Jessie committed to Arizona on the night of March 9th,” Jeff Fontes told FloSoftball.com. “The coaches had been watching her last summer and this winter.”
Fontes visited the school a few weeks back, and she and her family were swayed by the softball facilities, as well as the academic opportunities that await her—in five years.
But first: where will she go to high school?
