Former Plant right-hander and outfielder Matt Vaka has committed to pitch at the University of North Florida, coach Dennis Braun said Thursday. 

Vaka, who only pitched two Panther games last season and finished with a 1.00 ERA, often played designated hitter as a senior at Plant, recording a .330 batting average, 18 RBI, nine doubles, four triples and two home runs. In May, Vaka, a Times' second-team all-Hillsborough County selection, pitched in the Hillsborough vs. Pinellas Senior All-Star game at Tropicana Field.

Vaka will join former Wiregrass Ranch right-hander Zach Drury, who signed with the Ospreys last November.
