Jordan Vujovich, an outfielder from Sacramento, Calif., has signed a National Letter of Intent to continue his academic and baseball careers at Youngstown State University beginning in the 2016-17 academic year, Penguins head coach Steve Gillispie announced.
"Jordan brings us a solid left-handed bat, along with some real flexibility defensively," Gillispie said. "We feel he could play all three outfield positions as well as either corner of the infield. He also has some experience behind the plate. He brings a very high baseball IQ, and his make-up and character are what any coach hopes to have in his student-athletes."
Vujovich is the second student-athlete from the Sacramento area to sign an NLI this spring. He joins catcher Erek Bolton, whose commitment was announced on April 15.
Vujovich was named Honorable Mention on the Rawlings-Perfect Game Preseason All-Region Teams to prior to both his junior and senior years at Granite Bay High School. As a junior he batted .329 with a .488 on-base percentage while hitting five doubles, scoring 14 times and driving in 15 runs. For the NorCal AAU Baseball Club, he batted .436 in 57 games with seven doubles, two triples, two homers, 21 RBIs and 11 stolen bases. Additionally, Vujovich was named to the 17u Perfect Game World Series All-Tournament Team as he batted .364 with a run scored, two RBIs and a stolen base in 2015.
He batted .310 at Granite Bay as a sophomore, and his average was .529 with a .650 on-base percentage for NorCal in 2014.
