Grant McCray has decided to play baseball at Florida State University.
While some already know where they are going, other athletes are undecided about where they would like to attend.
Swimmers Keelysta Radloff and Sebastian Aguirre are both considering a few schools.
Runner Jonathan Reid is still deciding where he wants to run at for the next four years.
Reid said, “I’ve been running competitively since ninth grade. When I started, I never had any big goals for running. If you told me four years ago that I’d be running collegiately, I would have said you were crazy. Now, I would love to run in college but am undecided on where I am going. I feel everything has come full-circle and am excited to see where running takes me next.”
Hajar Benjoud has received offers for multiple schools but is not sure where should would like to attend.
Benjoud said, “I’ve been playing soccer for about 14 years and when I was younger, I always just assumed I would play in college because I loved it so much.”
