Buford High School Class of 2024 Nate Taylor announced via Twitter on Monday, Aug. 1, his decision to further his academic and baseball career at Georgia Tech.
The 6-foot-2, 200-pound right-handed pitcher is the latest in a long list of Buford baseball players to commit to play for Georgia Tech after graduation. Jackson Gaspard, Brant Baughcum and Riley Stanford from the Class of 2022 will play for Georgia Tech next season. Other Buford alumni who played baseball for Georgia Tech include Joey Bart of the San Francisco Giants, Alex Wilhite, Nick Wilhite, Keyton Gibson, Griffin Jolliff, Jake Burnette, Josh Heddinger and Chase Burnette.
After the Buford baseball team saw a number of seniors graduate in May, fans should see more of Taylor on the mound for the Wolves in the 2023 season.
