Pence gains experience representing Vol State

Competing for a spot to defend the middle of the Tennessee defense of the future will be shortstop Duncan Pence. Find out more about the talented infielder.

McALESTER, Okla. — The pipeline from his high school program to Rocky Top flows deep.

Farragut (Tenn.) High School consistently puts out future Tennessee Volunteers. Next up: Duncan Pence.

Pence is part of a list of Tennessee commits from the Volunteer State alongside Savannah's Cal Gobbell, Talbott's Will Heflin, Sevierville's Zach Linginfelter and Andersonville's Carson Pack.

With Pence's help, Farragut High won the 2014 TSSAA Class AAA state championship before finishing runner-up this spring. That's the same program that produced the Vols' current middle infield of Nick Senzel and A.J. Simcox.

In 2014, the shortstop guided the Admirals' offense by batting .377 with nine home runs, 38 runs batted in, 17 doubles and 46 runs.

Pence returned to Oklahoma to compete for Team Tennessee in the Junior Sunbelt Classic. See what the future Vols infielder told InsideTennessee by clicking play on the video below:
