The lineage of great pitchers to come through The Woodlands dates back decades from Major Leaguers Kyle Drabek, Jameson Taillon and Kevin McCanna to college baseball talents Chris Andristos (Texas A&M), Will Swope (Texas) and Devin Fontenot (LSU).
So, who is next?
Senior Dylan Kerbow will be the Highlander ace in 2021 after losing his junior year to COVID cancelling the season.
"It was really disappointing, because we were loaded and had a real shot at state last spring," he said. "I've had a good summer and look forward to the fall ball tournaments coming up."
Kerbow verbally committed to Texas State entering his junior year after hitting a few Bobcat camps and their coaches following him through the showcase circuit.
Will Jordan is a Pony.
The Woodlands Highlander junior committed to the legendary SMU golf program last Friday – a dream come true.
"I kind of started playing a lot later than other golfers," he said. "I started playing tournament in the sixth grade and I was okay. I couldn't really tell where I was on the scale back them. By the end of last summer, I realized I could go play somewhere really good."
June 15th was the official day that college coaches could reach out to high school juniors and Jordan had options.
"SMU is somewhere I've always really loved," he said "The campus is unbelievable. It's a small, prestigious school, which fits me. The facilities are unmatched and the coaches really care about their players. SMU has had tremendous team success recently and the recruits joining me want to build something special while we are there."
