John Szefc Flips a Maryland Commit

Tim Thomas

John Szefc has been assembling his staff over the past couple weeks adding multiple assistants and off-the-field staff. While that has gained most of the spotlight, Szefc has been steadily recruiting and making some noise on the trail.

Szefc will be bringing at least one of his Maryland commits with him to Blacksburg as top New Jersey pitcher Chris Gerard out of Bergen Catholic committed to the Hokies yesterday after being previously committed to the Terps. Flips like this aren’t a big surprise but do show that Szefc is well-respected on the recruiting trail.

Gerard is a great get as the 2018 recruit was All-New Jersey 1st team while also receiving multiple awards in New Jersey for his impressive season including Pitcher of the Year by the North Jersey newspaper The Record.

Congrats to Chris Gerard on his commitment to VT.
