NEW ORLEANS – Four seniors in Brother Martin’s baseball program signed national letters-of-intent at an on-campus ceremony Thursday afternoon.
Their families and friends won’t have far to travel, as all four cast their lots to play collegiately in their home state.
Heading the list is first baseman Tre Morgan, who signed with LSU, following through on a commitment he made more than two years ago.
Morgan, who is the No. 3 prospect in Louisiana’s Class of 2020 by Prep Baseball Report, hit .488 with three home runs and 27 RBI as a junior as the Crusaders won the District 9-5A championship and reached the Division I semifinals. Last summer, he was one of 80 players from around the nation invited to participate in the Prospect Development Pipeline League in Florida.
Signing with Southeastern Louisiana were pitcher Brennan Stuprich, who was the Catholic League player of the year in 2019, and outfielder Joe Delaney, who is 16th on the PBR Louisiana Class of 2020 rankings. Outfielder Cole Stromboe is headed to the University of Louisiana at Monroe.
Morgan, Stuprich, Delaney and Stromboe were each all-district selections in the spring.
