Nicolas Noya of San Francisco has given a verbal commitment to play college golf at UC Davis. Noya, who attends Saint Ignatius College Preparatory, is ranked No. 23 in the 2012 class and 15th overall in California.
Noya had narrowed his list to UC Davis, San Francisco, San Diego, Oregon, Nevada and UC Santa Barbara before deciding on UC Davis.
“I chose UC Davis because I thought that it provided the best balance of competitive golf and academics. I also feel that Coach Cy (Williams) and Coach (Todd) Hammonds will take my game to the next level,” Noya said. “They are building a very strong team and I am excited to be part of it.”
Noya won the 2010 San Diego Junior Amateur at Steele Canyon Golf Course and is the NCGA Junior Tour Champion.
