WVU Baseball head coach Randy Mazey may be retiring from a gameday role at the end of the 2024 season, but he’s remained steadfast in his commitment to helping the Mountaineers succeed following the end of his era.
That dedication showed this past week when the National Letter of Intent period for the 2024-25 academic year opened on November 8. With it came a flood of signings from the next wave of Mountaineers. When the dust settled, WVU Baseball had picked up 19 commitments for the 2025 season.
As of right now, Perfect Game rates the class as No. 28 in the nation, so it’ll be an interesting test of the power of the NIL-focused Country Roads Trust if any of these players have their names called in the MLB Draft in July. The class consists of an almost even mix of 10 pitchers and nine position players.

Those pitchers include Carlos Caraballo, Aiden Cody, JD Costanzo, Tucker DeLisle, David Hagen, Bryson Hoff, Benjamin Hudson, Ryan Press, Mac Stiffler and Bryant Yoak.
The position players include infielders Bransen Hensley, Jackson Ingram, Ryan Maggy and Jeremy Reyes; outfielders Griffin Burkholder, Jorge Valdes and Maxwell Molessa, the No. 1 ranked high school shortstop in West Virginia, and catchers Gavin Kelly and Sammy Laux.
In addition to three players from the Mountain State—Molessa, Hoff and Yoak—10 of the players hail from a state bordering West Virginia, as Mazey and the Mountaineers continue to recruit the region well.
The Mountaineers have had success poaching prospects from the Pittsburgh region in recent years, with 2023 Big 12 Player of the Year JJ Wetherholt growing up in Mars, Pa. That trend continues with this class, as Costanzo and Kelly both hail from the region. Other hometowns of note include Press and Valdes, both Ontario natives.
