Earlier this month Pensacola (Fla.) Catholic 2013 prospect took an unofficial visit to see more of Mississippi State's baseball program. On Monday morning the 5-foot-11 and 195-pound right-handed pitcher became a future Diamond Dog.
Geyer committed to head coach John Cohen and his staff this morning and became the seventh commit for MSU in the Class of 2013.
"I committed this morning and it's something I've been thinking about over the past week and a half," said Geyer. "I was excited to have the opportunity to play in the SEC and have (MSU pitching) Coach (Butch) Thompson make me a better pitcher.
"I went to see Mississippi State about two weeks ago and it was a great visit. The complex there and facilities are phenomenal and awesome. I just liked everything about it and was comfortable making my decision today."
Geyer noted he also had offers from Southern Miss, South Alabama and Samford along with interest from Central Florida, Louisiana-Lafayette and Tulane. He said his decision to become a Bulldog had a lot to do with the rise of late with MSU's program and also the chance to work with Coach Thompson.
"I have seen where Coach Cohen has taken the program lately and they've been moving up the rankings," Geyer said. "Then Coach Thompson is the best pitching coach around and he has pitching down to a science. I have confidence that he can help me become a great pitcher and take me to the next level, hopefully to the big leagues one day."
This past season Geyer was dominant on the mound and helped lead Pensacola Catholic to a 27-3 record. He was 9-1 on the mound with a 1.45 era and tossed four complete games. In 77.1 innings of work Geyer struck out 112 batters and only issued 23 walks.
Also an outfielder, Geyer hit .348 with two homeruns and 28 RBIs.
"I throw a fastball, curveball, slider and changeup," said Geyer. "They have my max fastball at 91 (mph) on Perfect Game but I hit 93 (mph) a couple of times last season. I can throw all four of those pitches for strikes at any time in the count. And I throw them all to keep batters off-balanced and I have confidence in all of them."
