On Tuesday, January 4, 2011, Prep student Felipe Perez made a verbal commitment to play baseball at UCLA. Perez is a member of the Class of 2012, and considered a number of college scholarship offers before deciding on UCLA. Perez is the Prep's varsity baseball shortstop and pitcher.

Perez was part of Team USA's 16 and under national team (read more here) - check out the video of the last game in Mexico. Perez actually has several baseball cards you can purchase on eBay, too! Get one, and find him on campus for his autograph - it will likely be worth a lot! Congrats, Felipe - Go Huskies! And Go Bruins!
