Life couldn't be better for Lucas Giolito (above) and Max Fried (below), the right-handed and left-handed standout pitchers for Studio City Harvard-Westlake.
They recently signed letters of intent with UCLA and took a moment to celebrate.
"UCLA is my dream school," Giolito said. "When I walked on campus, it clicked."
Said Fried: "Just knowing I have a place going to college and get a great degree and have fun playing baseball under one of the best coaches in America ... "
Yes, UCLA Coach John Savage will be excited knowing that two of the top pitchers in the nation have signed to become Bruins, but the big question is: Will they show up for classes next year?
Giolito is considered a candidate to be the No. 1 draft pick in the nation in June. Fried is a possible first-round draft choice.
