Madonna's Luca Fuscardo Commits To Kent State Baseball Program

Updated: Friday, August 2 2013, 11:23 AM EDT

Madonna senior Luca Fuscardo has committed to the ultra-successful Kent State baseball program.

Fuscardo was recruited to Kent as a centerfielder. He plays outfield, and pitches for the Blue Dons.   He'll be the third Blue Don to sign with a Division I school since 2010.  Max Nogay currently plays at WVU and Logan Linder is at Niagara University.

Last spring, Fuscardo hit .483 with 12 doubles, 3 homers and 25 runs batted in. He stole 16 bases. On the mound, Fuscardo posted a 4-3 mark with a 2.55 ERA.

Fuscardo also considered Division I options Buffalo, Akron and Longwood University.

Kent State has been one of the top mid-major programs over the past decade-plus. The Golden Flashes advanced to the College World Series in 2012.
