Florida State baseball has shown it’s willingness to get out early and scout and recruit. So far, it’s paying off in their 2023 recruiting class. The Seminoles now have 11 commits in the class, as Hudson Rowan committed to the Seminoles on Tuesday morning.

Rowan is a left-handed pitcher out of Panama City, Florida and Mosley high school. The southpaw stands 5’11, 158 pounds. He plays in the 5-star Mafia travel ball program, which Florida State is starting to leave their mark on.

The LHP presents a lot to like in his fastball alone. He has recently been up to 87 MPH, and sits in the mid 80’s with ease. His FB jumps on hitters, as he hides it well behind his back hip and extends deep down the hill. With the smaller, leaner frame, there is still a lot left on the fastball. Rowan also throws a CH in the low 70’s, paired with a mid 60’s breaker.

Rowan is the third left-handed pitcher to commit to FSU’s 2023 class, along with David Davila and Luke Dotson. All three have swing-and-miss fastballs, with room to grow. With a strong finish in the class over the next few months, this will be another top ten recruiting class for the Seminoles, following a #6 ranked ‘21 class and the #2 ranked ‘22 class.
