Outfielder Lucas Witt has decided to give up baseball to walk on to the football team. The former high school quarterback will join the team as a wide receiver and have two seasons of eligibility remaining.
Witt was a standout quarterback in high school, receiving All-State honors in 2008 and 2009, and was a U.S. Army Football All-American nominee. As a baseball player, he started in the corner outfield postion and showed off great speed and instincts. He’ll bring some immediate help to an area the football team needs it the most.
