Virginia Tech baseball has signed a Comet prospect to aid in its rebuilding process.

Christian Worley, now considered the linchpin of the Comet varsity baseball spring this coming spring, signed the NCAA paperwork to officially become a member of the Hokies program next year.

Worley was surrounded by an extensive number of family and friends, and the Comet baseball program was also represented by head coach Kenneth Day and members of his coaching staff.

Worley is expected to be healthy this spring after dealing with an elbow issue. He had very impressive numbers in limited duty heading into this spring.

The Comets had another breakout spring campaign last year, eventually falling in the Class 5 state semifinals to Mills Godwin in Richmond. Day said yesterday that Worley has a top quality arm. He’s also excited about the possibilities.

Halifax varsity baseball has a challenging slate next spring. The Comets will meet The Miller School and other top programs such as Pocquoson this spring. Day said all of the members of the Comets will need to step up.

Worley said he had been a verbal commit since the fall of his sophomore year. Now, he has made it official by inking with the program yesterday.

“I just like the coaches, and the atmosphere, it’s a welcoming atmosphere,” said Worley.

Worley expects to get stronger physically and knows he has to step up to be more mentally focused for success on the diamond.

Halifax is coming off a successful season in baseball this past spring.

The Comets made the Class 5 Final Four before losing in the state semifinals to Mills Godwin.
