"Those helped me a lot," said Brackman, who is also a lefty hurler who throws in the low 90s. "I'll set up official visits in a little bit and just go from there."
N.C. State is almost certain to receive an official visit. Brackman could take a trip to the campus as soon Sept. 26. He plans to visit Georgia Tech for baseball this weekend.
"Coach Sendek and the baseball coach were helpful in that they went over ways that I can pull off playing both sports," Brackman added.
In addition to N.C. State and Ohio State, Dayton, Cincinnati and Vanderbilt are also involved.
