WSU coach Brian Green unfortunately has his first season cut short after a promising start due to COVID 19. However, that has not stopped momentum on the recruiting trail. WSU has picked up three really nice commits in the past week.

The first to take the plunge was Langley BC right hander Loreto Siniscalchi. The 6-foot-3 pitcher has played on Team Canada the last two years and has been clocked up to 91 on his fastball. Jheremy Brown of Perfect Game likes the plane on Siniscalchi’s fastball and describes him as having a “sharp downer curveball”. The youngster ranks No. 249 on Perfect Game’s list of 2021 recruits.

2022 recruit Griffen Sotomayor also pledged over the weekend. The catcher out of Turlock CA was ranked by Prep Baseball Report as the 72nd best player in the state. Here is their scouting report on the receiver.

2022 Tumwater right-handed pitcher Ryan Orr gave his commitment two days ago. Orr is only 5-foot-11 170 pounds but according to Prep Baseball Report he uses his compact frame to attack hitters with an impressive fastball/curveball mix. Orr is the 10th ranked player in the state for his class.

The future is bright indeed for Green and the program.
