By Jimmy Trodglen


CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Clarksville continues to be a recruiting destination for Tennessee baseball.

Clarksville Academy left-hander Shawn Scott announced on his Twitter account he had verbally committed to the Vols Sunday.

Scott becomes the fourth Clarksville area baseball talent to commit to the Vols, joining Clarksville High infielder Skyler Luna and Rossview outfielder Christian Scott and pitcher/utility player Elijah Pleasants, who will all be freshmen on the Vols roster this upcoming year.

Scott also becomes the second underclassmen from the city to verbally commit to a SEC team. Rossview junior pitcher Gage Bradley committed to Vanderbilt during his sophomore year.

With the addition of Scott, seven Clarksville area baseball players have signed or committed to Division I programs in the past year.

Scott pitched for Team Tennessee this summer, one of the state’s elite baseball teams.

Scott was also named to baseball team, released Sunday.


Blessed and proud to announce that I have committed to the University of Tennessee to continue my education and baseball career. Thank you to God, family, coaches, and friends who have helped me along the way.
