Spartanburg Methodist Junior College has long had a strong connection to the USC baseball program, and Monday night the Gamecocks landed another of the top prospects in the Pioneer’s program. RHP Hayden Heflin (5-9 146) committed to the Gamecocks. Here is how Heflin put it on Twitter:
“Next year I’ll be a South Carolina Gamecock. Unreal feeling when you reach the goals you work so hard for.”
As a freshman last season at SMC, Heflin appeared in 9 games. He was 2-0 with 1 save and a 3.86 ERA. He struck out 14 and walked 8 in 18.2 innings.
Heflin played his high school baseball at Pinewood Prep and originally committed to the College of Charleston while in high school. He pitched in the summer for the SC Shockwave.
