By Robert Hydrick - bio | email

VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - The NCAA fall signing period is off to a busy start.Lowndes High outfielder Zac Freeman signed to play at the University of Georgia Wednesday afternoon.

Harrison Waller said. "I hope I can go in there and compete for a starting job my first year and win a couple of championships."


Up the road in Moultrie, Colquitt County ace Cole Pitts has signed to pitch at Georgia Tech.

Pitts was an all-region pitcher last season for Tony Kirkland's Packers and this summer earned the most valuable pitcher award for Team Georgia in the annual Sunbelt Classic.

Cole is looking forward to joining the Georgia Tech program and playing in the Atlantic Coast Conference.


Cole Pitts said. "I am ready to play against FSU definitely. Ready to play against them. That is a good team. Like I said N.C. State, all of them, North Carolina are good teams."

Cole's grandfather pitched for the Moultrie High Packers in 1951.

Valdosta High infielder Harrison Waller has signed to play at one of the top division two programs in the nation at Columbus State.

Last season, the Wildcats second baseman batter over 300 with 22 runs batted in.

Harrison is also good with a glove.

The winning tradition is one thing that attracted Waller to Columbus State and he is wanting to do his part to keep that tradition going for the Cougars.


Freeman will be a three year starter for Danny Redshaw's Viking baseball team.

He has led the Vikings in homeruns, runs batted in and runs scored in the last two seasons.

Freeman is excited about joining a Georgia program where he will be very familiar with some of his future Bulldog teammates.


Zac Freeman said. "I play travel ball with a bunch of kids from the middle Georgia area. I think there is already four commits from that team. So, I am going to already know four of the players I will be playing with my freshman year."
