Steinbrenner’s Cole Gordon has verbally committed to play baseball for Mississippi State University, Warriors coach John Crumbley said on Tuesday.

Crumbley said Gordon has committed as a first baseman prospect and hitter after another solid season at the plate. As a junior Gordon hit .422, with 30 runs scored, 33 RBI and seven home runs and was named as a Tampa Tribune All-Hillsborough County First Teamer.

Crumbley said Gordon, who had a solid sophomore season as a pitcher going 6-1, with 0.95 ERA before being unable to pitch in his junior season, has had done some pitching this summer and has hopes to get back to his previous form as a senior. 

Gordon is the second Division 1 commit for the Warriors as fellow All-Hillsborough First Team teammate Kevin Merrell (who will also be a senior) has verbally committed to South Florida.
