Pitt Lands Commitment from Harford Transfer LHP Zack Oswald



Pitt is in the midst of a 15-11 season through the early portion of conference baseball, and there’s some good news on the recruiting front now too.

Harford left-handed pitcher Zack Oswald, a former George Washington commit, announced his commitment to Pitt Tuesday night, with NJ College Baseball Nation highlighting Oswald’s career thus far.

Oswald (6-foot-3, 205 pounds) played his high school ball at Saint Peter’s in Hoboken, New Jersey and was given an 8.5 rating (between potential draft and/or excellent college prospect and potential top 10 round pick and/or highest level college prospect) by Perfect Game.

Perfect Game rated Oswald as a Top 1000 overall recruit and the 79th-ranked recruit in New Jersey (sixth-ranked left-handed pitcher) coming out of Saint Peter’s in 2020.

According to Baseball-Reference, Oswald played with the Jersey Pilots of the Atlantic Collegiate Baseball League in 2021, recording a 5.26 ERA and 1-2 record in seven games (six starts). In 25.2 innings pitched, he allowed 32 hits and 15 earned runs compared to 21 walks and 25 strikeouts.

Oswald will have three seasons of eligibility at Pitt and will look to break into Pitt’s rotation in 2023 and beyond. Pitt head coach Mike Bell will have another option to insert into his pitching room with the hard-throwing lefty.

I understand that in the NCAA, and limited scholarships, it might be tougher to get marquee players on campus from so away, but I also think there are players that want to play in… Read more »
