Cisco Commits To Oregon

BREAKING NEWS:

Chance Sisco, a sophomore pitcher on the Lake Elsinore Temescal Canyon High School baseball team, has told FOMB he’s made a verbal commitment to University of Oregon.

Sisco says he made the decision on Saturday, April 23, 2011, after taking a trip to Eugene, Ore. and talking with members of the baseball program.

“It’s very exciting. I was interested in them, and they’ve come down here to see me one time. They talked to me about all this. I know one or two of the kids there already,” Sisco said.

“We’re very proud of him. He’s on his way,” Temescal Canyon head coach Brandon Ham said.

Cisco went 1 for 3 with an RBI double in the first inning on Saturday at the Titans (16-5 overall, 8-3 Sunbelt League) defeated Elsinore, 4-0, on Saturday at the Sunbelt League Showcase at The Diamond in Lake Elsinore.

According to maxpreps.com, Cisco is batting .449 with 31 hits, 11 doubles, four home runs and 31 RBI in 69 at-bats — all team highs. He’s also 3-3 with a 1.36 ERA and 28 strikeouts in 36 innings. He has two complete games and three saves in 10 appearances.

UPDATE:

Cisco, who transferred to Santiago High School before his junior season, signed his National Letter of Intent during a ceremony on Feb. 6, 2012 in Corona.

Sort of surprising, a sophomore keeping to his commmitment long enough to see it through.

UPDATE (2):

Now a coveted catcher, Cisco was selected by the Baltimore Orioles in the second round of Major League Baseball’s amateur draft on June 6, 2013.

It remains to be seen if Cisco will sign his first pro contract or hold on to his scholarship offer from the Oregon Ducks, who recently finished the most successful season in their history.
