Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College has sent another baseball standout to the next level.

On Wednesday, catcher Logan McGrew signed a scholarship to play at Southern Miss. He joins next-level Bulldogs Josh Lewis and Ty Barnes, who signed with USM and Louisiana-Monroe earlier in the week.

McGrew, a former Sumrall standout, is coming off of a strong season for Gulf Coast where he hit .358 with two homers and 30 RBIs. He also backstopped a pitching staff that posted a 3.70 collective ERA.

“The thing that makes him so good is he’s an extension of our coaching staff on the field,” Gulf Coast coach Rodney Batts said in a release. “He’s a leader behind the plate. That’s not just a position you can stick anybody there and be able to do it. The intangibles he brings to our pitching staff are immeasurable.”

McGrew raved about USM’s program ahead of signing with the Golden Eagles.

“I went up there on a visit and talked with the coaches, saw the facilities,” McGrew said. “Everything is top notch. I kind of had the same feeling as when I came down here on my visit two years ago.”
