Found another baseball commit. Tall (6’3") and thin (150). Also named a 2017 Perfect Game Underclass High Honorable Mention

His brother pitches for PV (probably played a bit in the decision to commit to UH).

Laux was named 2nd team all-area:

BRANDON LAUX

Lincoln-Way East, Jr., P

Highlights: Committed to Houston … Finished 5-3 with 2.00 ERA … In 52 1/3 innings, allowed 39 hits and 17 walks to go with 54 strikeouts … Combined with Cole Kirschsieper to give Griffins a solid 1-2 punch at the top of the rotation, and both will be back next year.

Brandon just decommitted.

Good luck to the young man

Any clues as to why he and Cash decommitted? Haven’t seen them commit anywhere else yet.

Brandon decommitted right after his teammate and catcher committed to Northern Illinois. Have a feeling that he may end up staying closer to home.

No idea on Cash…he just finished up his summer league and it’s possible that other Universities are sniffing around and he wanted to keep his options open. Also looks like we just had another catcher commit to the '20 class (Maldonado) and already had Hogeboom committed as well.

Tough with baseball players because of the scholarship situation, the pros, JUCO, etc. Just so many options and players tend to commit and decommit much more often than other sports.
