CHARLESTON, S.C. – Head coach Jason Murray announced the signing of another recruit for the CSU baseball program on Monday. Corey Deighan, a right-handed pitcher from The Bolles School in Jacksonville Fla., will be joining the Buccaneers for the 2009 season.
The 6-foot, 4-inch righty has been a starter for his varsity team the last three seasons, helping to lead his team to consecutive district championships in 2007 and 2008. He sealed the 2008 title for his squad, pitching the winning game. At the time of his signing, Deighan had posted a 1.82 earned run average over 52 innings, registering 62 strikeouts to just 15 walks. In March, his efforts at the Westminster National Baseball Classic earned him a spot on the all-tournament team. A native of Jacksonville, he is the son of Michael and Melanie Deighan.
“Corey is an outstanding young man, student and baseball player, coming from a great family,” Murray said. “Our goal was to find a pitcher that had experience and talent to pitch from a low, three-quarter arm slot. He is really starting to learn how to pitch from his underneath angle and use the movement on his fastball.
“Corey also understands the rigorous Division I schedule as his sister was a swimmer at the University of South Carolina,” Murray said. “He competes very well and we look forward to having him come to CSU.”
