Pitcher/third baseman Greg Greve, who helped Walsh Jesuit reach the Division II state championship game for the third time in the past four years, has made an oral commitment to Ohio State.
Greve, 6-3, 195 pounds, was instrumental with his arm and bat in helping the Warriors finish the season with a 28-4 record.
The Brecksville resident compiled a 7-1 record and a 1.74 ERA, striking out 60 batters in 48 1/3 innings. He got the Warriors into the state semifinals when he threw a five-inning, 10-0 no-hitter against Lima Shawnee in the regional final. When given the opportunity to bat, Greve delivered, hitting .409 with four home runs and 31 RBI. The opportunity to pitch and hit was one of the things that sold him on OSU.
"They told me they would like to see me with a bat in my hands, and that was very important to me," said Greve, who was offered a scholarship when he made an official visit to OSU in June.
An outstanding student with a 4.07 grade-point average and membership in the National Honor Society, Greve, who is entering his senior year at Walsh, said he is undecided on a course of study.
