“Co-Lin is getting a good player who gets better every year,” said White. “Jacob been strong behind the plate for us catching over the last couple seasons, but this year we’ll move him to the field some. He’s been our two-hole hitter and he’s consistent and disciplined at the plate.”

Co-Lin head coach Clay Smith also mentions the versatility and athleticism when he talks about the future Wolf.

“Jacob will be a great addition to our club,” said Smith. “He is a quality catcher that can also play the corner infield. He had a very good junior season and we’re looking forward to watching him progress to be ready to step right in when he gets here.”
