Boise State Baseball

Boise State hitting coach Hilton Richardson works with catcher and Washington State transfer Cory Meyer following batting practice on Sept. 21 at Fort Boise Park.

The roster is set for Boise State’s revived baseball program.

The addition of right-handed pitcher Jake Nelson finalized the 32-player roster for the 2020 season — Boise State’s first baseball team since the school discontinued the sport in 1980.

“The final piece of the puzzle has been secured,” Broncos coach Gary Van Tol said in a BSU-issued release. “The journey to build our first baseball roster in 40 years officially started on December 11, 2017. Twenty months later, Jake Nelson’s commitment to Boise State finalizes our 2019 recruiting class. Jake also becomes our first player form the state of Utah and the College of Southern Idaho. His leadership, work ethic and perseverance will make a huge impact in our clubhouse and on the field. Jake is a big time OKG (our kinda guy). We can’t wait to get on the field with these guys in preparation for the 2020 season.”

Nelson is one of 15 pitchers on BSU’s roster, and the program’s second transfer signing this week. On Tuesday, the school announced the acquisition of former Oregon State left-handed pitcher Jordan Britton as a graduate transfer.

The roster features eight Idahoans, including 2015 Highland High School graduate Cory Meyer.

Boise State is Meyer’s third college baseball home. He started his career at Spokane Falls Community College, before spending the last two seasons at Washington State. He earned third-team All-America honors during his lone season at Spokane Falls.
