First-year Head Baseball Coach Matt Myers has added
some pitching depth for the 2013 and 2014 seasons.
WJBD Radio reported Tuesday that Andrew Edwards, a
right-handed sophomore starting pitcher for Rend Lake College in
Ina, Ill., has committed to play for the Toppers.
Edwards, a former Marshall County High School
standout, is a 6-foot-5, 245 pounder whose fastball has reached 95
miles per hour, according to the report.
He told WJBD that Myers’ experience developing future
professional players was a determining factor in his decision to
sign with WKU.
“He talked about his past players moving on to the
next level,” Edwards said. “I knew that’s where I wanted to be and
who I wanted to play for.”
Edwards has one year left at Rend Lake.
The report said WKU offered Edwards a full tuition
scholarship, which he plans to use for studying public relations
