Bryant Hodge (SS/RHP) from Moore, OK has verbally committed to the University of Oklahoma.
The multi-tool player has an explosive fastball that reaches into the mid 90’s and has exceptional control of his slider. He has great power from the right side of the plate and can play anywhere defensively. He was a huge asset to the 2011 USSSA High School Varsity National Team who competed in the Prague Baseball Week (Prague, CR) this past June.
National Team Coach, DJ Wabick, describes Bryant as “… an exceptional athlete and even more so a competitor. It is rare to find somebody of Bryant’s age that can move their fastball around the strike zone and throw their off-speed pitches for a strike in any count the way that he does.”
Hodge stormed onto the national baseball scene as a freshman where he qualified through ABR and was later named to the 2008 14u USA National Team. Over the course of his high school career, Bryant has managed to rack up almost every accolade possible. His superb work ethic has helped advance him to the next level, while his humbleness and confidence on the field has caught the eye of many baseball professionals. “The thing that stands out most about Bryant is his make-up. His work ethic and coachability only add to his outstanding God given talents and I have no doubt that he will be extremely successful at the next level,” explains DJ Wabick.
Over the past 3 years, Hodge has been named to 4 National Teams, received “USSSA First Team All-American Honors” (2009, 2010), and has been named ABR’s National Player of the Year award twice (2010, 2011).
Hodge will be representing USSSA this upcoming summer, once again, on its High School Varsity National Team who will be traveling internationally.

Logan Shore (RHP/3B) from Coon Rapids, MN has given a 2013 verbal commitment to the University of Florida.
Shore has the tools necessary to exceed at the next level. The 6’2” 194lb hard throwing right hander, who reaches the low 90’s from the mound, features a plus fastball that projects well do to his size and strength. He also displays tremendous power at the plate with an ability to produce consistent backspin. His strong wrists and consistent approach lead him to be a two way threat.
“Shore has the perfect baseball body that makes his plus tools that much more projectable. With his strong frame and nose for the game, Shore is going to be a huge asset to the University of Florida,” explains USSSA National Coach, DJ Wabick.
Shore made a huge statement from the mound at the 2010 USSSA All-American Games where he was named a First Team All-American and awarded a spot on the 2011 USSSA National Team. He continued to pave the way for himself this past summer at the USSSA Gold Medal Games where he helped lead the USSSA National Team to Gold against eight other countries and named the Tournament MVP.
“Shore is an outstanding talent and was a real pleasure to see play this summer. With outstanding tools across the board, Shore’s projectability is even better as he has a strong, wiry frame that is perfect for baseball.” – National Team Coach, DJ Wabick
