Tue. August 10, 2010 | Eduardo A. Encina

Jesuit junior baseball player Conor O'Brien committed to the University of Florida Tuesday evening, Jesuit coach Richie Warren said.

O'Brien played sparingly last season as a sophomore on the Tigers' senior-laden Class 4A state finalist, throwing six scoreless innings, allowing just three hits and striking out eight. He was also 1-for-6 at the plate, his only hit a two-run homer against Robinson.

Warren said O'Brien was recruited by the Gators to be a pitcher, but he will also play outfield for Jesuit this upcoming season.

O'Brien is the third member of Jesuit's junior class to commit to a Division I baseball program and the second to pledge to the Gators. Outfielder Vincent Leto committed to USF and pitcher/shortstop Lance McCullers committed to Florida, both in February.
