Rich get richer: Tennessee baseball lands commitment from SEC transfer pitcher
Tony Vitello is right now getting Tennessee ready for its College World Series appearance in Omaha. The Vols will play Virginia in their opening game of the College World Series on Sunday.
Everyone around the country is taking notice of the Vols baseball program and what Vitello is building. The latest big news for the Vols program is former Missouri pitcher Seth Halvorsen announced he’ll transfer to Tennessee.
Thank you to everyone at Mizzou for the past 3 years but I am blessed to be able to say that I am committed to continue my baseball career at the University of Tennessee #govols pic.twitter.com/532bP0egMf

Halvorsen, from Plymouth, Minnesota, started 14 games for Missouri in 2021, striking out 70 hitters. His last outing of the season came against Auburn where he struck out 7 Tigers batters. No doubt that Halvorsen is a big powerful arm for Tennessee, but he’ll need to be more consistent if he’s going to develop.
The Minnesota native was a 30th round draft pick in 2018 out of high school.
