Clarksville High Wildcats Donny Everett signs with defending NCAA Baseball National Champions Vanderbilt University

 

Clarksville High School WildcatsClarksville, TN – Clarksville High School’s hard-throwing, right-handed pitcher Donny Everett cast his lot with the defending NCAA Baseball National Champions Vanderbilt University, by signing a Letter of Intent on November 12th, in a ceremony held in the school’s cafeteria.

“I went to a showcase the summer of my freshman year and the Vanderbilt coaches saw me and we just sort of started talking form there,” Everett said. “I just loved everything they had to offer with a great education, plus they really wanted me, so it was a great fit.
