OF/P Talks WVU Visit, Recruiting

Bob Huggins and Dana Holgorsen aren’t the only coaches sending their staffs out on the recruiting trail. West Virginia head coach Randy Mazey is also staying buys scouting top talent to help the Mountaineers as they transition into the Big 12 Conference.

Fabian plays both outfield and pitcher for St. Ignatius (OH).

One prospect that has been receiving attention recently is St. Ignatius (OH) outfielder/pitcher Nick Fabian.

“I have spoken with Coach (Derek) Matlock several times on the phone and email,” said the 6-foot-3, 175-pounder. “Very surface level discussion and that I had a lot of potential, which is why they had me down for the visit.”

Earlier this fall, the 2014 prospect made his way to Morgantown and came away impressed with what he saw.

“The visit was great,” said Fabian. “I visited the campus and went on various tours throughout the weight room, future field etc. I was able to get a field pass for (the) Oklahoma football game, and after nice seats to watch the game itself.”

West Virginia isn’t the only stop for the talented prospect, however.

“I have visited Michigan State and am scheduled for February 10th to go down to Ohio State for a visit,” said Fabian, who batted .412 over the spring and summer. “I am also in contact (with), but have not visited, Miami (OH), Louisville and Indiana. Several other MAC schools are also in the mix.”

As many talented high school players do, Fabian plays multiple positions, roaming the outfield, but also taking the rubber on a regular basis. However, his future position in college is “most likely” in the outfield.
