Mark Kingston's South Carolina baseball team knocked off the Missouri Tigers in the "other Columbia" this past weekend as they took two of three games to win the series on the road. However, those wins were not the only ones over the weekend for the Gamecocks.

On Sunday evening, in an appearance on the Prep Baseball South Carolina podcast, class of 2025 right-handed pitcher/shortstop Bradley Anderson announced that he was making a commitment to the South Carolina baseball program.

Anderson is a product of Fox Creek High School in North Augusta, South Carolina, and he played previously for the Silver Bluff Bulldogs. He is the 18th commitment in the class for the Gamecocks. In his commitment announcement, he called the University of South Carolina his "dream school since [he] played t-ball" and called himself a "Carolina fan [his] whole life."

Expected to pursue pitching at the college level, Anderson has a good fastball that already sits around 90 miles per hour, but he has mid-90s potential in his arm. He also mixes in a change-up and a breaking ball that has displayed big break and late break depending on how he throws it. Everything else he throws has nice movement, as well, as his fastball runs and his change-up seems to disappear behind swinging bats.

Listed at 6'1" and under 160 pounds, Anderson still has plenty of room to add some strength, which should allow him to tack on a few miles per hour to his fastball.

Anderson plays shortstop some for Fox Creek, as well, but his college future is believed to be on the mound.

Anderson was the second commitment to the program in the last week as Barnwell High School outfielder Cam Austin committed after the Gamecocks beat the Kentucky Wildcats in a three-game series last week.
