Gerhart will be taking his final official visit to Stanford on January 13. He visited Mississippi on November 11, Utah on November 4 and UCLA on December 16.
"I loved my visit to UCLA," Gerhart said. "The family atmosphere of the program is great. I love how close all the players are. The school is really nice and I liked all the facilities. It was cool because we got to go to their Christmas awards dinner and that was fun. It was nice to see everyone relaxed and having fun. The coaches brought their families and they played family feud, which was great. It was just a lot of fun."
He says that he will make his decision shortly after his Stanford visit. "The quality of education at Stanford is unbeatable and they have a really great baseball program too," Gerhart said. "Also, their team is still up-and-coming and I'd be able to contribute early there.
"Ultimately, I think it'll come down to my trip to Stanford. I really like UCLA, but Stanford has a lot to offer too. I'll try to make my decision soon after that visit. I'll have to weigh all my options and discuss things with my parents."
He reports a 4.6 GPA and a 1810 SAT.
