NORTH RICHLAND HILLS, TX — The Lone Star Brahmas are pleased to announce the National Letter of Intent signing of two Brahma players: Nicholas Niemo to Bentley University and Tyler Nasca to Mercyhurst University.
The National Letter of Intent is a binding agreement between a prospective student-athlete and an NLI member institution, where a student-athlete agrees to attend the institution full-time for at least one academic year in exchange for a sports scholarship. This program is governed by the NCAA.
