Pirates Add 3 More 2015 Signees, LHP/OF Brandon Hill, SS Jay Meuse, OF Kurt Ornowski

In a position player heavy recruiting year for Coach Thomas, he continued to add to what appears to be a very talented class of position players.  CVCC received signed letters of intent from LHP/OF Brandon Hill of Parkview High School, SS Jay Meuse of Woodstock High School, and OF Kurt Ornowski of Harris County High School.

Brandon Hill“Brandon Hill is the next in line of our Parkview guys.  We have had so much success with players out of that program through the years.  Coach Brown does a phenomenal job.  Brandon will be a 2 way guy for us, as he has electric speed in the OF, and has a mid to upper 80’s arm from the left side.  His ceiling is extremely high, and I am very fortunate to have the opportunity to help him reach it.”, said Coach Thomas.

Below are some of Brandon’s stats and accomplishments

Jay MeuseCoach Thomas said this about Jay Meuse:  “The Woodstock area has been very good to us over the past several years, and Jay brings a blue collar mentality to the game that has been synonymous with CVCC.  Jay is a slick fielding, tall and rangy infielder, and like most of the guys we are bringing in, has the ability to play multiple infield positions.  One of the more hidden gems in Georgia, we are ecstatic about signing Meuse.  He is an SEC player waiting to happen.”

OrnowskiThomas on Ornowski, “Kurt brings some left handed thunder to the lineup for us next year.  Coach O’Neill did a remarkable job in landing us Kurt.  He is one of, if not the, top hitter in his region.  With the graduation of so many of our position players this season, Kurt will certainly be one to potentially fill a hole for us in the outfield.”

 

Below are some of Ornowski’s stats and accomplishments:

  • .483, 4 homers, 7 doubles, and 22 RBI’s
  • First Team All Bi-City
  • First Team All Region
