BASEBALL: Trae Harmon signs with University of Kentucky – Commonwealth Journal’s History

He played for the Briar Jumpers as an eighth grader, and in his four years up to this point, Harmon has posted a career batting average of .417, with 26 home runs.

With his skills and knowledge of the game, along with a great work ethic, no doubt Harmon will shine at the University of Kentucky much in the same manner as he has done over the course of the past four seasons as a Somerset Briar Jumper.

So, why go to Kentucky?

Indeed, it is a big deal, as Harmon will become the second player from Somerset to play at the University of Kentucky in the past six years, following in the footsteps of another great Briar Jumper in Storm Wilson.

As for the guy that has coached Trae Harmon for the past four years — and has one more season to go in the spring of 2018 — Somerset head baseball coach Phil Grundy pointed out the University of Kentucky is getting one of the top players in the state, and is very lucky to add a guy like Harmon to the Wildcats 2018 recruiting class.

“He’s just a high-energy guy, and he’s the kind of coach that I wanted to play for,” said Harmon. “Hopefully, I will be on a team that can take us to the College World Series.”
