Geaux Tigers!

Although only a junior, Brady Kehlenbrink has already verbally committed to play baseball at LSU


From Patriot to Tiger.

Junior Patriot pitcher Brady Kelhenbrink verbally committed to Louisiana State University this past fall.

Competing schools such as Mizzou, University of Central Florida, Wichita State, and others all reached out to Kehlenbrink, however LSU stood out greatly to him. 

“LSU had a competitive offer,” he said. 

Oftentimes for athletes, it takes a lot to make a big decision like where they want to go to college. All it took for him was the coach’s quick adjustment of his arm, and instantly Kehlenbrink knew that this was the right decision for him. 

“I didn’t think twice about it,” Kehlenbrink said. “I then realized with these coaches I can develop my ability further.” 

In the process of committing, it is important to have people supporting you for each step, the way his family, friends, and coaches have been supporting him. He said he looks forward to the warm weather of Baton Rouge, and the exciting tailgating for all of LSU’s sports teams with his close friends and families.

Although it may be common to hear about seniors committing to schools, you don’t hear of many junior commits. Kehlenbrink knew LSU would provide him the technology he needs to succeed, he hopes with the help of coaches, and the technology at LSU, he will hopefully get drafted. 

To show off his skill to his future coaches, Kehlenbrink warmed up with a 10-pitch bullpen and coaches automatically were impressed with his throw. During his visit to the campus, he and other potential teammates practiced together. Kelhenbrink did his best to stand out. 

“I just tried to outwork everybody,” he said.

LSU being one of the top-ranked college baseball teams in the country means it is bound to attract many talented players. Kehlenbrink says he is excited to play with Christian Little, a transfer pitcher from Vanderbilt who attended high school at CBC. He wants to make history as a left-handed pitcher alongside Little. 

Although Kehlenbrink, “ will miss South school spirit,” He knows he can use what he has learned here to strive in the next few years. 

“Geaux Tigers,” he said.
