Mitchell RHP/INF Cobi Johnson commits to FSU

Mitchell standout junior baseball player Cobi Johnson has verbally committed to play at Florida State, coach Scot Wilcox told the Tampa Tribune on Monday evening.
Johnson, a 6-foot-3, 175-pound right-handed pitcher and infielder, batted an impressive .416 last season, knocking in 37 hits, 11 RBI, five doubles and a homer. Johnson also scored 32 runs and stole 13 bases. As a relief pitcher, he made seven appearances striking out seven and walking seven.
Johnson mainly plays third base in the infield and committed just one error during his sophomore season, as well as racking up 117 putouts.
Johnson, who helped the Mustangs to a 14-12 record, but failed to make it out of the district tournament, had narrowed down his choices to FSU and North Carolina, according to Wilcox.
The Seminoles were 50-17 last season, advancing to the College Baseball World Series in Omaha, Nebraska, where they lost to eventual national champion, Arizona.
