East Central's Saksa commits to PRCC

East Central pitcher/third baseman Eric Saksa has verbally committed to attend Pearl River Community College, he said Tuesday.

Saksa, who is coming off a strong junior season, said he had his sights set on PRCC for a while and was comfortable enough with head coach Josh Hoffpauir to go ahead and commit.

Sasksa likes PRCC's tradition of developing players who go on to compete in Division I baseball.

Saksa said he hopes to play third base for the Wildcats and work out of the bullpen as maybe a closer.

A strong defensive player, Saksa batted .291 with 16 RBI this year for the Hornets.

On the mound, Saksa was 6-3 with a 1.62 ERA.
