Just a few days after de-commiting from UNC, Brock Deatherage has traded Carolina Blue for Wolfpack Red. The speedy centerfielder will join Coach Elliott Avent's Wolfpack baseball squad in the fall of 2014.
Deatherage visited the NC State baseball facilities today (Tue; Aug 20) and spent a great deal of time with Coach Avent discussing how he would fit in both academically and athletically as a member of the Wolfpack baseball squad. Brock's parents, David & June Deatherage, were also in attendance. Apparently, they liked what they heard because it was enough to secure Brock's services in Raleigh for the next 4 seasons.
Coach Avent is targeting Brock to play centerfield for the Wolfpack. Fresh off a trip to the College World Series, the NC State coaches were thrilled with Brock's commitment. They've even got Brock's #13 jersey "on hold" waiting for him.
We'll catch up with Brock in a week or 2 for an interview.
