Tigers get commit from 6-5 LHP
From Gwinnett Daily Post:
For the second time this summer, Clemson’s baseball program has gotten a verbal commitment from one of Gwinnett County’s top rising high school senior pitchers.
This time, it’s Duluth’s Zack Erwin Zack Erwin

The 6-foot-5 left-hander joins Brookwood infielder/right-handed pitcher Lucas Sims on Clemson’s commitment list. Sims committed to the Tigers earlier this summer.
Erwin is currently attending the prestigious East Coast Pro Showcase in Lakeland, Fla., and could not be reached for comment.
But Duluth coach Matt Champitto confirmed Erwin’s commitment to Clemson and was very optimistic about his potential.
“He’s come on strong of late,” Champitto said of the rising senior. “He threw well for us (last spring) and then went out this summer and really blew up. I’m really glad he’s coming back for another year.”
Erwin went 7-4 with a 3.09 ERA and a team-best 68 strikeouts in 65 2/3 innings in helping the Wildcats (20-12) to their first state playoff appearance since 1997 this past spring.
