West Virginia’s baseball program received two commitments on Thursday as INF Caleb McNeely and LHP/OF Brayden Gregg announced their collegiate decisions.

McNeely just completed his sophomore season at Walters State Community College in Tennessee and Gregg is a class of 2024 prospect.

“Excited to announce that I am committing to West Virginia University to continue my academic and athletic career! I am grateful for my time at Walters State and for everyone who helped me get here,” McNeely said.

“I am honored to announce my commitment to West Virginia University to continue my academic and athletic career. I would like to thank everyone who has helped me get to this point,” Gregg wrote.

McNeely played in 67 games for the Senators hitting a .390 batting average. The Versailles, KY, native hit 25 home runs and drove in 78 RBI’s. McNeely was also a threat on the base path, stealing 23 bases and only caught twice. McKeely has two years of eligibility remaining.

Gregg is a rising junior at Avon Grove High School in Pennsylvania. According to Prep Baseball ReportGregg has a 87 max on his fastball and has an exit velocity of 82.8 when batting.

The baseball team’s two commitments make three within a few weeks. Last week, WVU received a commitment from Tulane transfer Grant Siegel. The right-handed pitcher was named to All-AAC Second Team at the end of the season.

The West Virginia baseball team is coming off a great season in which they finished 33-22 overall with a 14-10 Big 12 record, but weren’t selected for the NCAA tournament.
