Countdown to Signing Day: WSU's 2013 Recruiting Class

With the fall signing period starting on November 14th, PBR Ohio will be taking a look at the number of players from Ohio headed to a college program within the state’s borders. Each day, we will break down a school's class player-by-player. Earlier, we reviewed the recruiting classes from AkronBowling GreenCincinnatiDaytonKent StateMiami UniversityThe Ohio State University, Ohio University and Toledo. Now, we move on to Wright State University. 


In their 2013 recruiting class, Wright State did not take an exceptionally large class from the state of Ohio.

The Raider’s first commitment from inside the state of Ohio came from Talawanda’s speedy, left-handed hitting outfielder Nate Lynch, who played an integral role this past summer on the Ohio Heat, who won the 17U CABA World Series. Lynch figures to be a top of the order bat and run producer for Wright State.
Towards the end of the summer, Coach Cooper and Coach Lovelady secured a commitment from two-way prospect Gabe Snyder of West Holmes. Snyder, a left-handed hitting and throwing prospect, was shut down on the mound this summer after leading West Holmes to the Division II state semi-finals in June. Prior to being shut down, the 6-foot-5, 210-pound prospect displayed a mid 80’s fastball with an effective breaking ball. He also adds a power bat to the Raider’s class.

Additionally, the Raiders picked up a local commitment from Sean Murphy, a catcher with strong catch and receive skills from Centerville HS. 

It should also be noted that Wright State added former Perrysburg star and current Sinclair CC left-handed pitcher Matt Kruzel as well.
