Rising Greenbrier senior Adam Sasser, a pitcher-first baseman, verbally committed to play baseball for the University of Georgia on Friday.

 

Greenbrier High School slugger Adam Sasser has committed to Georgia.

The rising senior committed to the Bulldogs on Friday. He hit .389 with seven home runs and 38 RBI as a junior. The Wolfpack reached the Class AAAAA state semifinals.

Sasser, who said he re-ceived an offer July 1, also won four games as a pitcher. But he said Georgia is looking for him to be a hitter.

The first baseman also follows in his parents’ footsteps by picking Georgia.

“It’s been my dream school,” he said. “Growing up as a kid, I would watch on TV or go to games. I always wore red and black.”

By making his decision, Sasser said he can nowfocus on improving and helping Greenbrier.

He was also the second Greenbrier star to commit during the week as Nick Sandlin picked Southern Mississippi.

“In a way, they are more worried about finding a college than playing the game,” Sasser said about some players who haven’t committed. “So me committing will help me out stress-wise.”
