Torrey athletic director Jeff Hutzler said Monday that Ayala had signed with the Chicago White Sox and had already reported to their minor league operation.

Ayala had been scheduled to attend the University of California, Santa Barbara, but the White Sox sweetened their offer and guaranteed Ayala’s eventual college education if he signed with the team now.

Hutzler had talked with Ayala on Monday and said he had flown into Bristol, Va., the location of the White Sox rookie team, took his physical and was in uniform by the second inning of that day’s game.

Hutzler said as part of his contract, the White Sox will pay for Ayala’s  college education if he ever decides to attend school in the future.
