Atascadero High School senior Cade Van Allen signed his National Letter of Intent to place baseball at CSU Bakersfield during a ceremony held outside of the AHS athletics offices Thursday afternoon.
Van Allen, a three-sport student-athlete for the Greyhounds helped lead Atascadero to the CIF Central Section Division 3 title game this past spring. The Greyhounds were defeated by Highland, 3-0.
Van Allen says he’s excited to take his talents to the next level.
“I’m looking forward to going over there, living on my own, staying with the guys, and really developing a good, strong team relationship at the Division 1 level,” Van Allen said. “I’m also looking forward to my sophomore year with our team transferring to the Big West and playing against some of my former teammates that I played with in high school. I think that’ll be a pretty fun experience.”
