AMERICUS. – Hurricane Baseball head coach Bryan McLain has announced that 8 student-athletes have signed their National Letters of Intent during the early-signing period to attend Georgia Southwestern State University play for the Hurricanes in 2015.

This upcoming class features eight players from the state of Georgia.

"We are excited about this group of young men," says coach McLain. "They are all outstanding students as well as quality people who come from good families and we think they're going to be solid college baseball players. As with the previous recruiting class, we've placed an emphasis on targeting quality high school kids to get GSW Baseball on track. Coach (Nick) Tracy and Coach (Ryne) Foster have done an exceptional job addressing the needs of the program going forward with this early sign class. This is the largest early signing class that we have ever had."

The 8-member class that will enroll at GSW in August and play the 2015 season includes the following plus comments from the Hurricane coaching staff:
