One of the county’s top players, Wiregrass Ranch junior infielder Michael Campoamor, has committed to Furman, Bulls coach Jeff Swymer told the Tampa Tribune on Tuesday afternoon.

“He was offered a very good scholarship and just couldn’t turn it down,” Swymer told the Tribune. “He’s pretty excited.”

Campoamor, a six-foot, 165-pound infielder, who also occasionally pitches for the Bulls, visited both Furman and South Alabama over the long weekend, but opted to play for the private, liberal arts school in South Carolina.

Campoamor batted .315 with 17 RBI, nine doubles, a triple and a homer as a sophomore in 2012 for the 19-7 Bulls that narrowly missed the postseason. Campoamor also scored 27 runs and stole four bases last season.

This season, Campoamor has helped led the Bulls to a 3-0 record and the team has allowed just two runs thus far.
