ELLISVILLE, Miss. (WDAM) - High school baseball players around the country – and in the Pine Belt – signed scholarships this past week.

Many local players decided to stay close to home including South Jones pitcher Cole Richardson. The 6-foot-5 right-hander inked with Southern Miss on Wednesday.

“It’s a winning program, period,” Richardson said. “They’ve shown that they can win 40-plus wins a season, for almost a decade. Just blessed to be able to be a part of that. Just really excited to be with coach [Christian Ostrander] and I know what he can do. Just ready to go, ready to work.”
