South Carolina baseball coach Chad Holbrook is hitting up the junior college ranks with zest in his efforts to quickly return the Gamecocks to postseason play.
The Gamecocks on Saturday landed a commitment from RHP Colton Provey (6-3, 185) of Walters State Community College in Tennessee. He’s a teammate of Gamecocks first baseman commit Ross Grosvenor and is the fourth junior college player to commit in this class.
Provey pitched out of the bullpen last season. In 27 appearances, all in relief, he had a 6-1 record with a 2.42 ERA and 10 saves. He struck out 62 in 48.2 innings of work.
The Gamecocks now have 16 pledges for the 2015 class, not including the two commitments who were drafted earlier this week and plan to sign.
