Visconti ‘Blossoms’ And Commitment To Louisville Follows

MASON - The projectability stood out. It was just a matter of time before Andrew Visconti would find a college. It finally happened in the fall and now the Mason sophomore is a Louisville commit.

“It all started this year,” Visconti related. “I kind of blossomed. I grew a lot and, obviously, I’m trying to put on weight.”

Joining the Brewers Scout Team this fall proved beneficial.

“I knew how much schools would get to see me,” the third-rated 2025 left-handed pitcher in Ohio explained. “Toward the end of fall I pitched two games and did pretty well. A few coaches got to see me and that got me in contact with Louisville. After that they wanted me to come to a camp.

“I went when they were playing Pitt in football, I wanted to see what the school is like,” Visconti continued. “The school spirit is something I wanted. That really stood out about Louisville. There’s no other major sports teams around so everyone follows them.”

Cincinnati, West Virginia and Xavier headed other colleges that the 16-year-old was considering.

“I was new to this, there weren’t many offers,” Visconti noted. “I was looking at three schools and had others interested in me, Miami Florida, UCF and Rice that wanted me to come to a camp.”

But it was Louisville that Visconti became attracted to and eventually pulled the trigger with a commitment to the university in Kentucky two hours from home.

“Their pitching coach watched me at the camp,” the seventh-ranked sophomore in the state said. “At the end I got on a zoom with them and talked to my parents about them. I like how competitive they are and how many players they have that go in the draft. That was good for me. The offer came at the end of fall and I accepted a week-and-a-half after.”

It wasn’t hard to recognize what Louisville saw in Visconti.

“They like my projectability,” Visconti pointed out. “I’m a left throwing mid-80s as a sophomore and will probably blossom into someone throwing in the low-90s senior year. They like my breaking ball and thought I’d be a good fit.”

Visconti, who plans to continue being a two-way player in high school as a pitcher/outfielder at Mason, is excited to reach a goal established some time ago.

“I’ve always been thinking about it,” the 6-3 150-pounder said of playing at the next level. “One of my goals has been to make it on a college roster. When I started growing and getting a lot stronger and working with pitching coach Greg Williams is when it became realistic.”

Gaining size has helped the cause.

“I’ve always been a tall kid but wasn’t the strongest in the world,” Visconti noted. “I really started growing between my eighth grade and freshman year.”

That aided his quest in finding a college home during an enjoyable recruiting process.

“Looking at all these schools, it was cool to see all of them,” Visconti reflected. “A lot of them didn’t know what I could do, so to put the numbers out there with PBR really helped. The Fall Prospect Camp in Chillicothe helped me out a lot. Schools could finally see this guy on paper and what he can do on the mound. It helped put it all in perspective what I can do and they could see me on the mound.”

Visconti credited Eric Minshaw with being vital in pitching mechanic improvement with Kurt Hutter, Curt Bly and Lance Durham coaches who have helped throughout his recruitment.

“I’m really excited to commit, I really like Louisville,” Visconti said. “It was definitely a surreal moment when I committed. My parents were really proud with all the work I had put in, especially academically.”

While a major in college is uncertain at this point, Visconti - who carries a 3.9 GPA at Mason - is confident about what he will be able to provide the Atlantic Coast Conference program.

“I’m a team player, team comes first,” Visconti related. “Whatever helps us get a win. Off the field I’m laid back and just go with the flow. I always get along with all my teammates. On the field I’m pretty competitive.”

That is what Visconti is looking forward to when it comes to baseball at Louisville.

“I can’t wait for the competition,” Visconti concluded. “Being with my team with friends on it and trying to be the best you can be while playing in the ACC is huge to me. I can learn a lot from Louisville baseball and I look forward to playing for a championship every year.”
