Georgia QB commit Jake Fromm leads HS baseball team to state title

The Georgia Bulldogs are set to have a pretty talented quarterback join the team next year as Jake Fromm will enroll in January 2017. Before that, however, he was able to help his high school baseball team to the state championship.

Fromm belted a home run in Houston County’s 12-0 win over Loganville in the Georgia Class AAAAA state title game on Tuesday. The home run was contested by the opposing coaches and two of them were thrown out, which led to Houston County adding on eight more runs for the final score in the game.

“That at-bat for me happened so fast,” Fromm said. “It was the first pitch, and the ball felt good off of the bat. I knew the ball was going a long way. I just didn’t know if it was going to be fair or foul. We used the momentum, and it’s just awesome.”

Jake Fromm, who flipped from Alabama earlier this year, will not play for the baseball team next year as he will leave school early to enroll in classes at Georgia in January. He said he is going to miss the sport, but he knows that playing college football is his dream.

“I’m going to miss baseball,” Fromm said. “I’ve played it my entire life. I used to be a baseball player and I rarely thought about football, but it’s great to go out with a bang.”

Fromm is a four-star member of the Bulldogs’ recruiting class and is the third-ranked pro-style quarterback in the country and the fifth-ranked player in the state of Georgia.
