Commitment Tracker

The week of Christmas saw four players from North Carolina report their commitments.  Typically a slower time of year as many coaching staffs work to take a break and get away from their phones, the staff at Guilford College did bring in one 2019 and one 2020 this week.

Kyle Ziefert (OF, Butler HS, 2019) selected the Quaker program.  A high energy, fundamentally sound player from Charlotte, Ziefert should continue to develop as he adds strength to his frame.  A quick twitch athlete, Ziefer ran a 7.15 sixty in 2017 as part of the Carolina Bulldogs scout day.  He followed it up in 2018 at the Preseason All-State event with a 3.96 thirty and a 4.18 in the 5-10-5 shuttle.

The Quaker staff also received an early verbal from 2020 Kade Smith (SS, Alexander Central HS).  Smith has a lean frame, standing 6-foot, with plenty of maturation still ahead.  A clean defender, there should be plenty of arm to project to the left side of the field as he gets to Guilford.  Smith still has two more springs at Alexander Central and the development process should continue.
