When it comes to the stick-and-ball sport versus its gridiron signing class, Michigan State is batting .500 this offseason.
Last month, 2019 three-star signee Jase Bown, who was selected with the 334th overall pick (11th round) by the Pittsburgh Pirates in the Major League Baseball draft, announced that he had signed with the MLB club and would be, at least for now, eschewing a collegiate football career. Another member of MSU’s most recent class, Adam Berghorst, was also selected in the 14th round in the same June draft; however, the Texas Rangers draftee took to Twitter this month to confirm that he will forego a career in professional baseball and will play football for the Spartans.
Additionally, the 6-7, 265-pound pitcher confirmed in that tweet posted over the weekend that he will also play baseball in East Lansing.
A three-star member of MSU’s 2019 recruiting class, Berghorst was rated as the No. 42 strongside defensive end in the country and the No. 16 player at any position in the state of Michigan.
