Rebels add big time juco pitcher

Aaron Barrett (RHP, Wabash Valley CC, ILL) - The 6' 4", 215 pound power pitcher made it final this weekend when he committed to the University of Mississippi.

"I committed to Ole Miss," added Aaron Barrett. "I called Coach Bianco and told him if he has a #33 jersey, I am ready to be a Rebel. He was pretty excited."

Barrett then proceeded to call the baseball recruiting coordinator at Ole Miss.

"I called Coach Rob, and he was real excited. He said I just completed their puzzle."

Why Ole Miss?

"When I ever I took my visit, as soon as I stepped on their field, I knew that is where I wanted to pitch. Plus, Lance Lynn showed me a around, and he was a big factor in my decision. It is just a great school, in the premier baseball conference in America, and I feel like I fit in the best there."

Barrett said he choose the Rebels over Louisville and Kentucky.

Aaron had a 2.45 ERA and opponents batted less than .200 for the season as a freshman for Wabash Valley College.
