Gamecocks Baseball lands 11th Commitment for the Class of 2011

Wade Hampton High School star Kyle Martin becomes the 11th player to say they will be a gamecock in 2011.  This comes after the Class of 2010 was solidified.

Martin, who gave his verbal last week, becomes the third player in his class that can both hit and pitch. Martin joins Laurens Academy’s Alex Satterfield and Austin Gambrell from Belton-Honea Path as the two-way players in the class of 2011.

The six-feet-one, 200-pounder is the top first baseman in the state and is known for swinging a big bat both in high school and for his Canes AAU team.  He is ranked the No. 8 overall prospect in the state in Diamond Prospect’s summer rankings.  A southpaw, Martin becomes the first left-handed pitcher to commit in his class.

Coach Tanner continues to stock the baseball roster with talent year after year.  Great to see, go cocks and welcome Mr. Martin.
