Anthony Giannette will be one of The John Cooper's newest weapons on the diamond come February and is already committed to play at the next level.
Giannette verbally committed to play baseball at Louisiana Tech on Thursday.
"Louisiana Tech is a great school backed up by a profound engineering program, which is the career path that I am taking," Giannette said. "When I took a visit all of the coaches were very welcoming, and the atmosphere was easy to fit in to.
"Many factors went into the decisions making process; How my family felt about the college and how they would be able to support in the future, the measure of the educational side along with the baseball program, how I felt about the college when I walked around it, and how I saw myself with the players and coaches in the future."
