Pair of Midlands high school baseball standouts commit to Clemson program

·1 min read

Clemson picked up two commitments from Midlands baseball prospects this weekend.

On Friday, Lexington’s Nathan Hall committed to play for Monte Lee and the Tigers. Hall is a rising senior for the Wildcat baseball program and is playing for the Canes travel team this summer.

On Saturday, Spring Valley infielder Brent Gibbs committed to the Tigers. Gibbs is a rising junior.

Clemson made an offer to Hall on Wednesday. Some of his other offers included Liberty and North Greenville.

“I chose Clemson because Coach Lee sees me as a big part of the program and really made me feel welcome there,” Hall said Friday night. “Along with this I feel that Clemson is the best school for me to be able to develop as both a baseball player and person.”

Hall can play both infield and outfield and is ranked as the No. 3 outfielder in the state for Class of 2022 by Diamond Prospects. He hit .532 with three homers, nine doubles and 21 RBI this season for Lexington.

Hall becomes Clemson’s 11th commit for the Class of 2022 and fifth in-state player, joining Hartsville’s Cam Cannarella, Boiling Springs’ Tristan Smith, Greer’s Mavis Graves and T.L. Hanna’s Jay Dillar.

Hall’s teammate, Cal Herndon, signed with Clemson for the Class of 2021.

Gibbs is the third commitment for Clemson for Class of 2023, joining Brookland-Cayce’s Ty Marshall and Berkeley’s Jackson Proctor.

“I am excited to announce that I will be continuing my academic and baseball career at Clemson University. I would like to thank God, my teammates, my coaches, and my family for pushing me to be the person I am today. Go tigers!” Gibbs posted on Twitter on Saturday.
