(San Diego, CA) - USD head men's golf coach Cory Scoggin is pleased to announce that Nick Baines (Portland, Oregon) has signed a national letter of intent and will join the Torero program for the 2013-14 school year. Baines is wrapping up his senior year at Westview High School.

"I am really excited to have Nick joining our program in the fall," said USD head coach Cory Scoggin. "From the very first time I saw Nick play I was impressed with his power and ball striking ability. He has natural talent that I don't see very often and I know he will be an asset to our team next year."

Baines recently closed out his high school career by winning the Class 6A state tournament in Oregon at Trysting Tree Golf Club by five shots. Baines was tied for the lead after shooting a 1-under-par 71 in the first round, but ran away from the field with an impressive 5-under-par 67 in the second round. His 138 total was good for a five-shot win over runners-up Cole Madey of Lake Oswego, Clayton Madey of Lake Oswego and Jake Reiff of Lakeridge, all of whom finished at 143. He lead his team to a 2nd place finish at the 6A state tournament.

A four-year letterman at Westview High School, Baines is the 4th-ranked junior in his class for Oregon, and the 7th-ranked player overall in the state of Oregon. He represented Oregon in the Junior America's Cup and the Hogan Cup Team Matches in 2012. He qualified for the USGA Junior in 2012 by winning medalist honors at his own qualifier.

This past season the USD Toreros made their sixth straight appearance and seventh trip in the last eight years to the NCAA Regional's.
