Jefferson junior baseball player Steven Negron didn't see much time at shortstop last year playing behind USF-bound shortstop Chad Taylor.
The multitalented Negron, who will start at short for the Dragons this season, has now committed to USF, Jefferson coach Pop Cuesta said Friday.
Negron played shortstop, second base and DH last year, hitting .259 in 27 at bats. He also had a .417 on-base percentage.
"He really turned it on over the summer," Cuesta said. "He hit .400 in American Legion. He's a nice switch hitter, he can bunt and he has an excellent arm."
Cuesta said Negron will team with his cousin, second baseman Einar Muniz, this season. Cuesta said USF assistant coach Lazer Collazzo called them the best middle infield he's seen this year.
