Jesuit senior Hunter Van Horn verbally committed to Louisiana State University, coach Richie Warren said Friday. Van Horn, a 6-foot-3 left-hander went 3-0 for the Class 5A state semifinalist Tigers making seven appearances in his junior season.

Warren said Van Horn really improved over the spring for Jesuit showcasing a fastball in the 88-92 mile-per-hour range.

Last year Van Horn verbally committed to Central Florida, but Warren said he decided in the Spring that the school wasn’t the right fit for him. Van Horn has been invited to the East Coast Pro Showcase, a talent showcase hosted by professional baseball scouts, in Syracuse, NY at the end of July.

Warren said Van Horn also had offers from the University North Carolina, Ole Miss, Florida State and Florida International and was drawing interest from a number of other schools including Florida and Virginia.
