Monday, March 11, 2013
Christian De La Cruz of San Antonio has given a verbal commitment to play college golf at Texas A&M in 2014.
De La Cruz, a junior at Lady “Bird” Johnson, made unofficial visits to Texas-El Paso, Houston, Rice, Oklahoma and Arizona before deciding on Texas A&M.
“I choose A&M because I have grown up an Aggie with both my parents going there,” De La Cruz said. “They are also building a new practice facility that will be one of the best in the country.
“Coach Higgins has built A&M into a premier program that is a threat to win the national championship every year.”
De La Cruz won the 2011 Texas Junior Golf Tournament Traditions Fall Invitational at Texas A&M and the 2011 PGA Junior Series at New Mexico State. He was also the runner-up at the PGA Junior Series at The Quarry in San Antonio. De La Cruz played in the 2012 and 2011 U.S. Junior Amateur. He also has six AJGA top-20 finishes.
