Former Spring Valley High School left handed pitcher Billy Sager has decided to play college ball at WVU. The talented lefty had signed with the Ohio Bobcats earlier in the year, but we granted his release after head coach Joe Carbone retired.
Sager is coming off successful Tommy John surgery and is working hard in rehab to get back on the diamond.
"Honestly, I just never expected to be going to WVU," Sager told Grant Traylor of the Herald-Dispatch. "I thought I was set for Ohio, to be honest, and when they got a new coach, I didn't know what I was going to do. When WVU popped up, I jumped at it. It's a great feeling."
Sager is rehabilitating his arm currently and should be able to start hitting in August before starting a long-toss program in September. He said that he should be ready for the 2013 season.
West Virginia is also ushering in a new coaching staff as Randy Mazey takes over the reigns of the Gold and Blue.
