Columbus State baseball coach Greg Appleton Tuesday announced that West Georgia Tech pitcher Kyle Peals has joined the Cougars' 2015 recruiting class.
Peals, a 6-foot-3 right-hander, struck out 66 batters in 75 innings while posting a 5-1 record during his sophomore season for the Golden Knights.
"Kyle gives us an experienced pitcher that is ready to go," Appleton said in a release. "He will be able to help our staff immediately."
CSU's pitchers led the Peach Belt Conference this year with a 3.89 earned run average.
Peals graduated from Coosa High School in Rome, Ga., prior to joining West Georgia Tech.
Appleton will be announcing the rest of the 2015 class next week.
