Rangy Steinbrenner P/1B Cole Gordon, whose seven home runs led the Warriors last spring, has committed to Mississippi State, coach John Crumbley announced Tuesday morning.
He can't sign until the NCAA's initial signing period in early November.
Gordon (6-foot-5, 230 pounds) hit .422 as a junior, helping lead Steinbrenner (24-3) to the Class 7A, District 9 title. He led the team with an .859 slugging percentage and tied for the team lead with 33 RBIs.
In his past two seasons, he has totaled 11 homers and 54 RBIs.
