Three Bothell High School athletes celebrated signing National Letters of Intent to play college athletics on Wednesday.

Josh Martin, Reece Laufasa and Daniel Fredrickson signed their letters during a ceremony held at the high school before classes with friends, family and coaches.

Bothell High School senior Josh Martin signed to play basketball at the University of Minnesota next year. The 6-foot-7 senior made his decision to play for the Golden Gophers in September. Martin was highly recruited by Florida State, Oklahoma State and Pittsburgh.

Martin averaged 11.8 points and 8.2 rebounds as a junior for the Cougars after transferring from Seattle Prep. Martin also shot 50 percent last season, helping the Cougars to the state tournament and earned all-state honors.

Fredrickson, a senior, will play baseball this spring for the Cougars before taking his talents to Washington State University in the fall of 2014. As a junior, Fredrickson hit .347 and helped lead the Cougars to the state tournament.

Laufasa is the setter for the Bothell High School volleyball team and signed to play with Northern Arizona University. Laufasa had 337 assists this season for the Cougars, leading the team deep into the District tournament with a 13-14 record. Laufasa transferred from Juanita High School last year and also played for the club team Sudden Impact Volleyball.
