South Warren junior pitcher Cameron Shryock verbally committed to the University of Kentucky on Thursday.
Shryock also had an offer from Western Kentucky, he said, and had talked with other schools including Louisville and Ohio State.
“Playing SEC baseball was always a dream for me, and with the offer and top-notch education that they have at UK, it just made sense,” Shryock said Thursday night.
The 6-foot-2-inch, 145-pound right-hander has two total losses in his first two seasons pitching for the Spartans. He’s ranked the No. 4 player in Kentucky’s 2015 class by Prep Baseball Report.
As a freshman, Shryock helped lead South Warren to its first state berth with wins in the District 14 and Region 4 championship games, and his only loss of the year came in the second round of the state tournament. His lone loss as a sophomore came against district foe Greenwood.
