Dana Hills High School baseball players (and brothers) Marrick and Hans Crouse have verbally committed to play college baseball, according to head coach Tom Faris.
Rising senior Marrick Crouse committed to the University of San Francisco earlier this year. Crouse will join teammate and former staff ace Louis Raymond when he arrives on campus. Raymond graduated this spring and will play baseball at the school next season.
Marrick Crouse had a breakthrough junior season for the Sea View League champion Dolphins. The right-handed pitcher went 8-2 on the year with a 1.50 ERA and 74 strikeouts in 74 2/3 innings pitched. Crouse also batted .333 with seven RBIs.
Hans Crouse, who got limited playing time at the varsity level as a freshman, committed to Mississippi State. Crouse, a pitcher, appeared in two games for the Dolphins, logging 2 1/3 innings. Hans Crouse committed following a trip to Georgia for a showcase event with his club team, according to Faris.
