Tidwell, who signed with the Luce Prospect Group on November 21, 2016, is the 13th Prospect to sign a scholarship to move on to the college level to play baseball this year.
“There aren’t many kids who can match the work ethic of Jake Tidwell,” said LPG CEO Jake Luce. “Jake’s character, family, and quality values are the reasons for him receiving this opportunity to play college baseball. I believe he will aide in the development of the program they’re building at Austin College.”
There are now only 2 UNSIGNED Prospects remaining in the LPG Class of 2017.
Tidwell expressed his gratitude via Twitter immediately following the announcement.
