Jesuit senior baseball player Max Beerman, one of the Tampa Bay area's most imposing power hitters, has committed to Villanova as a two-way player, Jesuit coach Richie Warren said Tuesday morning.

The 6-foot-6, 260-pound Beerman, who led the Class 4A state finalist Tigers with eight home runs last spring, committed to the Philadelphia-area private school on Monday night, Warren said.

Beerman also received interest from Delaware, Furman and Holy Cross, Warren said.

A first baseman/right-handed pitcher, Beerman hit  .291 with five doubles, eight homers and 30 RBIs last season. On the mound, he was 4-0 with a 1.94 ERA and 29 strikeouts in 18 innings for a Tigers team that went 27-7 and made its second straight Class 4A state championship game appearance.

Beerman provided perhaps the biggest hit of last season when he hit a walkoff grand slam to give Jesuit a 9-7 comeback win over Lakewood Ranch in the Class 4A region semifinals.
