CBA keeps churning out Div. I baseball players

The Pikeville pipeline to the NCAA Division I baseball ranks is still humming.

Charles B. Aycock head baseball coach Charles Davis confirmed to me Monday that two more of his players have given verbal commitments to Div. I programs.

Rising senior outfielder Will Edgerton has chosen UNC Wilmington and will make it official this fall while rising junior shortstop Connor Narron has verballed to North Carolina. Narron, of course, has another year of high school before he can make it official. He is the son of former MLB player and manager Jerry Narron, who was a high school star at Goldsboro High several decades ago.

This past season, CBA had catcher Zach Wright, who wil attend East Carolina University in the fall on a baseball scholarship. From his 2007 3-A state championship squad, Davis had Garrett Davis and Grant Sasser, who just finished their freshman seasons at UNC and N.C. State University, respectively.

Garrett Davis had to undergo season-ending Tommy John surgery this spring but CBA's Davis said the rehabilitation is going well.


  1. He's rated by some as the top position prospect out of the 2010 high school class.

  2. Edit: He refers to Narron.
