Jags Put Finishing Touches On Recruiting

Jags Put Finishing Touches On Recruiting

AUGUSTA, Ga. - Augusta State head baseball coach Chris Cooper announced Friday the addition of four prospects to the Jaguar Baseball program.

With the signing of three freshmen and one junior-college standout, Cooper has finalized his 2010 recruiting efforts and solidified his corps of pitchers.

Junior-college transfer Rob Crosby, a 5-11, 175-pound right-handed pitcher from Covington, Ga., and Georgia Perimeter College, posted a 4-0 record in 11 appearances and seven starts. In 33.3 innings, he posted 37 strikeouts and only allowed 14 earned runs. He will two years of eligibility remaining.

"Rob is versatile enough to be a starter or come out of the bullpen," Cooper said. "Adding Rob gives us some real solid depth. He has a quality arm and can get his fastball up between 85-88 mph."

Another righthander, Kevin Dodson, prepped at Providence Christian Academy in Lawrenceville, Ga., and also saw action at shortstop.

"With Kevin's ability mid-to upper 80's fastball to fill up the strike zone with any of his pitches, he will be a tremendous asset to the program," said Cooper. "He will get the chance to swing the bat and play some shortstop in the Fall, but for the most part he will be on the mound."

Further bolstering the Jags' pitching corps is Mack Adams, a righthander from South Gwinnett High School in Snellville, Ga. Adams started as a middle infielder and on the mound for the Comets.

"Mack was a two-way player for South Gwinnett, but we will look for him to earn his way into a role as either a mid-week starter or regular out of the bullpen," Cooper said. "He has a low to mid-80's fastball and an above-average changeup that he can use to keep batters off stride."

Colby Adeebe, a 6-2, 200-pound outfielder from Duncan J. Fletcher High School in Neptune Beach, Fla., will add depth to a Jaguar outfield that returns four letterwinners from last season.

"Colby has the size and power that you're looking for in a corner outfielder," said Cooper. "As a coaching staff, we expect for him to push for a starting spot."

In his first year at the helm of the ASU Baseball program in 2010, Cooper guided the Jaguars to a 16-31 overall record. ASU is expected to return five starters and 28 letterwinners for the 2011 season.
