Abell commits to Lions

HANCOCK — Skylar Abell (Rock Falls, Ill.) has committed to play for the Finlandia University baseball team.

“I’m happy to add Skylar to our incoming class. He is a pitcher from Illinois that will solidify our pitching staff,” Finlandia head coach Evan Brandt said. “Skylar is a high intent pitcher that will develop quickly with coach Purdy. I see him making an impact right away and being able to provide extremely competitive innings as a freshman. Skylar has a high upside with his mechanics and size. I am looking forward to see him progress through his four years here.”

Abell joins Andrew Andrade (Riverside, Calif.), Jake Amshey (Marne, Mich.), Hunter Futrell (Leander, Texas), Jonah Hunter (Fort Worth, Texas), Elijah Justice (Wildwood, Fla.), Nick Savoie (Iowa, La.), Chase Sides (Millport, Ala.), Jacob Wade (Southaven, Ms.) and Anthony Willey (Fox Lake, Ill.) in the third wave of the 2021 recruiting class. There are 17 total players so far in the class.
