Adam Matthews will return for his senior season at South Carolina, he said on Sunday.
Matthews broke the news through his Twitter account.
"Looks like I'll be wearing Garnet and Black for my senior year," Matthews said on his account @AdamMatthews26.
The outfielder is spending his summer playing for the Florence RedWolves. A hamstring injury limited the former White Knoll standout to 34 games as the Gamecocks marched to their second consecutive national championship this season.
Matthews was a 23rd-round draft pick of the Baltimore Orioles.
Associate head coach Chad Holbrook later Tweeted, "Happy that @AdamMatthews26 wants to spend his senior year in Columbia. Great kid with incredible talent. We got some fast guys!"
Matthews batted .264 with two home runs, two triples and four doubles and 14 RBIs for South Carolina in his junior season. He was able to return to almost full health near the end of the year but only received spot duty for the majority of the postseason.
He had a pick-me-up in the College World Series when he scored the winning run against Virginia on the Friday before the championship series.
