WVU Baseball picked up another 2024 commitment on Friday, when infielder and right-handed pitcher Bryson Hoff announced his college choice.
“Beyond Blessed and excited to announce my commitment to further my academic and athletic career at West Virginia University,” Hoff said on his Twitter account. “I’d like to thank my Family, friends and coaches that have helped me get to where I am today, and a big thank you to WVU for this opportunity.”

Hoff, who plays for George Washington High School in Charleston, stands 6-foot-2 and weighs 175 pounds.
While Hoff excels on the mound, he possesses an excellent bat as well, enough to earn time as a two-way player in the middle infield. The Mountaineers have used two-way talents like Kevin Dowdell in recent years, as anything is possible with Randy Mazey calling the shots.
Hoff’s fastball sits in the low-to-mid 80s, with his slider topping out around 79. Given Hoff’s lanky frame, he’s likely to gain velocity as he continues to build strength: his fast, tight-spinning slider gives a glimpse of his potential.
Hoff earned a spot on West Virginia’s AAA All-State team in 2023 as a pitcher. He could use another pitch (especially if he wants to start), but possesses plenty of talent—and time—to develop.
Mazey’s staff has done an excellent job of developing pitchers within the WVU baseball program, seeing at least one arm drafted in four of the past five years.
