Owens commits to Miami
Edison pitcher Henry Owens committed over the weekend to the University of Miami, Edison Coach Steve Lambright said Monday.
The senior left-handed pitcher, who went 9-2 last year, was in Jupiter, Fla., playing for the St. Louis scout team at the World Baseball Classic before visiting the Miami campus.
"Miami was the first trip I took and everything just felt right," said Owens, who also had planned to visit both USC and Arizona. "I toured the campus and the atmosphere was great. I had a great time with the team and I really liked all of the coaches. It felt like the right fit."
Owens said he informed Lambright of his decision Sunday.
"He called me and said, 'Coach, I'm committing to Miami,' " Lambright said. "He had a nice trip there and made his decision. Miami has a lot of history in terms of baseball tradition and it's a quality program.
