Summer baseball is just getting started and the ‘Noles staff is quickly heating up. After picking up a ‘21 commitment from Dylan Jacobs earlier in the day, the staff got a 2022 commitment out of Pennsylvania. LHP Nick Biasi announced his commitment to the ‘Noles late in the afternoon.

Biasi comes out of Hazzle Township, PA. The southpaw has been up to 89 MPH with his fastball and sits in the 87-88 MPH range. Biasi is just 5’8, 175 pounds, but has easy arm speed from the left side. With an easy arm action the velocity should continue to climb before he reaches campus. As you can see in the video below, the ball jumps out of his hand with significant arm side run. He also throws a curveball and a changeup.

Biasi was the 12th commitment of the 2022 class and the third southpaw. The ‘22 class is now up to 8th in the nation. There’s still multiple spots to fill, but the class is starting to cement itself as a top ten class in the nation.
