University of Colorado at Colorado Springs men's basketball coach Russ Caton announced the signing of Chris Fernandez to a national letter of intent.

Fernandez, a 6-5 senior at Grandview High School, played in every varsity game as a junior and shot 49.4 percent from the field and had 21 blocks.

"The nice thing about Chris Fernandez is he is very versatile. He can do a lot of things," said Caton. "He's a very team-oriented player and a good student. Thatâ€TMs the kind of kid we want to get.”

Fernandez will be joining the Mountain Lions for the 2007-08 season.
