Jon Zacharias, a 2018 RHP from Notre Dame Prep HS in Wiscosnin, has verbally committed to Cornell University!

Jon, at 6'4" 200lb, has continually increased his velocity throughout the last couple years and is now up to 86 in game. There is little doubt that he will be upper 80's+ when he gets to Cornell his freshman year. He has plus movment and understand how to pitch. 

Obviously in the classroom he is a great student with a 3.9 GPA and a 31 ACT. 

Jon will be coached by Dan Pepicelli who will be entering his third season at Cornell. Coach Pepicelli came from Clemson where he was the pitching coach for six seasons which includes three as the associate head coach. He saw 10 of his pitchers at Clemson selected in the MLB Draft. 

Last season Coach Pepicelli led Cornell to a 21-17 overall record including a win over Michigan State.

Jon becomes the 101st college commit since Rhino Baseball start in 2013. He joins Eli Kramer, a 2019 Nebraska commit, as the most recent DI commits from our Wisconsin program. 

Cornell was a top choice for Jon and couldnt be more thrilled that it is the place he will call home for the next 4 years. 

Congrats Jon, such a great fit!
