Uncommitted Spotlight: Huntley Reopening Recruitment

Max Huntley SS / OF / Mattawan, MI / 2019

MATTAWAN - Max Huntley knows what he is looking for in a college baseball coach. He found it once, but is looking again after the retirement of Central Michigan veteran mentor Steve Jaksa.

The decision to call it quits by the second-winningest CMU head coach in school history has Huntley reconsidering his commitment to the Mid-American Conference school.

“The plan was 100 percent to go there,” the senior-to-be at Mattawan said. “But when he retired the coaching situation became unclear. I talked to assistant coach Jeff Opalewski (associate head coach and recruiting coordinator) and he said he wasn’t a finalist. I really like him and he doesn’t know if he’ll return.”

Jordan Bischel was named the new head coach at CMU this week, taking over for Jaksa after 16 years in charge of the program. In that time Jaksa totaled 507 wins, won three MAC titles and had 33 MLB draft picks, including three this year.
