USC baseball Coach Dan Hubbs is finally beginning to gain some traction in recruiting top players from Southern California. The next key will be making sure they show up on campus.
The latest commitment comes from left-handed freshman pitcher Nick Pratto of Santa Ana Mater Dei. He was a teammate of outfielder Christian Moya of Bishop Amat on the USA 15U team that won the gold medal this summer in Colombia. Moya committed to USC earlier this week.
Pratto will make his varsity debut for Mater Dei this spring.
