JEFFERSON CITY, Tenn. -- University of Tennessee first
baseman/pitcher Jeff Lockwood (Knoxville, Tenn.) will join the
Carson-Newman baseball team for his senior season, Eagles head
coach Tom Griffin announced Tuesday.
Lockwood transfers to C-N after being a solid contributor for the Vols each of the last three seasons.
"We're excited to have a kid that has played in the Southeastern Conference," Griffin said. "He's familiar with the program and some guys on this team, so we're excited to have him. He had a good summer and his confidence is back. He was ranked the 10th best prospect in the New York collegiate summer league. He can hit for power and pitching wise, he's a competitive kid."
In his first year in Knoxville, Lockwood garnered freshman All-American honors after batting .315 with 34 RBIs and compiling a 2-2 record with eight saves.
As a sophomore, he had a .340 batting average in SEC play in 48 starts. Lockwood also pitched 32 innings and had a 2-2 record.
Last season, Lockwood appeared in 37 games, pitched 26 innings and finished with a 4.10 ERA.
Lockwood is a graduate of Halls High School in Knoxville, where he was a three-time All-State and 2006 Louisville Slugger All-America first team selection. He was also a four-time All-District and All-Region selection and received 2006 District Pitcher of the Year, 2005 Knoxville News Sentinel Prep Xtra Player of the Year, 2005 District MVP, 2004 Knoxville News Sentinel Prep Xtra Sophomore of the Year and District MVP and the 2003 District Pitcher of the Year honors.
During his high school career, Lockwood set Halls career records for batting average (.450), home runs (44), RBIs (185), wins (31) and batters struck out (351).
