COLUMBUS, Miss. -- The Owls baseball program has received 35 commitments in preparation for its program’s inaugural 2017-18 season.

These student-athletes are joining The W from a total of five states which include Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, Illinois and Tennessee. At this moment, the talented group of freshmen will be joined by nine transfer students, five of which possess previous collegiate baseball experience. 

When asked about the incoming recruits, Head Coach Matt Wolfenbarger said, “Recruiting has been very successful and I am excited to be putting the finishing touches on this year’s recruiting class. These young men are not only great students but are exceptional people. They are honored to be a part of The W’s first ever baseball team. The athletic department’s four core principles of academics, athletics, community and life will be fundamental in shaping the lives and actions of these student-athletes.”
