Former Bulldawg signs with UNM

Former Las Cruces High shortstop Daniel Gonzalez has signed with the University of New Mexico.

Gonzalez, who hit .357 with 31 RBI in 56 games with El Paso Community College, will be eligible to play for UNM in 2009.

Former New Mexico Junior College head coach Ray Birmingham and current Lobos coach Ray Birmingham had a chance to compete against Gonzalez last year and said he liked Gonzalez because of his good hands and because of his defensive ability.

"I want to recruit New Mexico and there are a lot of good players in Las Cruces," said Birmingham, a former baseball coach at Mayfield High School. "Daniel is a very good player and he's got a bright future."
