May be more verbals that I am unaware of - please feel free to add. I have heard that Somerset has a shortstop that may have committed to Duke? Dull from C. Ridge? Lefty hurler from Conemaugh Township? Pitcher from Hollidaysburg? Just a few that I am aware of. Thats a pretty healthy list IMO. I am sure not all are committed but I have at least heard that they are or should be on the radar for some.

Ronan PC , Pitt.. Servello verbal WVU.  Ertter ?

The local league wasn’t good enough for your kid. Nor were the local travel teams. How many trips did you take to Pittsburgh for practice? Where’s your kid playing now? Mt. Aloysius? Washington & Jefferson? He’s not? Oh well. You tried.

Nah.  Mr. KIA who posted before my last one.  Sounds like he's had a bad day.

That's a pretty good list.  I hope they all find success.

Stiffler from Somerset was drafted in the 7th round back in '13. There are a lot more guys from the area going to play at higher level D2 schools and mid major D1s. My opinion as to why is that recruiting in the Pittsburgh area has become so diluted, schools are now branching out to the surrounding areas. Somerset/Cambria county is becoming a honey hole for a lot of PSAC schools nowadays.

Nice list and good luck to all!  

However, there have always been kids from the tri-county area who have done well, played at college, etc.  Today's names are just publicized more because there isn't much else to cover in the papers.  Plus it behooves the, what is it now?? five or six local travel organizations???  to get names out there to keep the enterprise attracting more parents.  

But for a reality check, look at the backstop at Somerset or on any of the travel site commitment pages and see just how many of those kids who went somewhere to do something actually finished where they started.  Local college teams are crowded with kids who went somewhere else but ended up back home within 18 months.  Its kinda like Little League...  everyone is an all-star stud until they move up.  Everyone is also a stud when Mom and Dad are writing the checks.

But, hey, as long as they enjoy the ride, who cares.  That's what its all about!  Better than sitting on their asses doing nothing!
