SIGNING DAY 2017: Permian’s Tyson Banks signs for Indiana University South Bend

During national signing day, Permian senior Tyson Banks inked his letter of intent to play baseball at Indiana University South Bend on Wednesday at Permian High School.

The Titans — an NAIA program that plays in the Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference — posted a 21-30 record during the 2016 season.

Banks, who played baseball at Midland Christian last year, helped the Mustangs to a 29-11-1 record, losing to Houston Second Baptist in the TAPPS 4A state championship game.

The 6-foot-3 senior right-handed pitcher returned to Permian in the fall and started at outside linebacker for the Panthers football team.
