Texas baseball lands two 2021 commitments


NCAA Baseball: College World Series-Arkansas vs Texas Steven Branscombe-USA TODAY Sports

Recruiting for the Texas Longhorns baseball program continues to branch out into younger classes, as head coach David Pierce and his staff picked up commitments in the 2021 recruiting class on Monday and Tuesday.

On Monday, Pierce added a pledge from Dripping Springs pitcher Cameron O’Banan, who apparently had an impressive performance during a summer showcase:

Like many of the prospects recruited by Pierce since arriving in Austin, O’Banan is a quarterback at Dripping Springs currently competing for the starting job as a sophomore with three other players.

O’Banan is currently listed at 6’0, 180-pounder, but may be taller than that now and already has a fastball that reaches 87 miles per hour.

Like the commitment from O’Banan, the Tuesday pledge from Flower Mound pitcher Jack Arthur came after a recent summer showcase performance. A 5’11, 180-pounder, Arthur also plays a variety of other positions and can reach 85 miles per hour with his fastball.
