Getzelman, a two-time Northwest Herald All-Area first-team selection, committed to Missouri on Sunday and will play on a baseball scholarship. The Tigers, under longtime coach Tim Jamieson, are moving to the rugged Southeastern Conference this year.
. . .
“The thing that drew me in most [to Missouri] was I liked the people in the program,” Getzelman said. “It’s a great program and they’re moving to the SEC, which is intriguing as well. Going to places like South Carolina and LSU will be tough, but I look forward to that as a competitor and a person.”

Former Prairie Ridge left-handed pitcher Rick Zagone, a 2005 graduate, also played for Jamieson at Missouri. Zagone now pitches in the Baltimore Orioles’ organization. . .

As is the case every year at this time, there are many prospects who have seen their stocks skyrocket during the chaotic recruiting months. Perhaps the biggest winner during the spring and summer is Prairie Ridge OF Jordan Getzelman, who earned PBR second-team All-State honors in the spring, and followed it up with a big-time June showing. Getzelman, who’s now ranked No. 3 overall in the class, possesses the rare combination of speed (6.6) and power (9 homers in the spring).
