Time is running out for the Chicago White Sox to sign Cal State Fullerton All-American outfielder Spencer Oborn, and Oborn says he expects to be back playing for the Titans next season.

Fall classes begin Aug. 23 at Fullerton, and the White Sox would forfeit their draft rights if Oborn doesn't sign before returning to school.
