A baseball standout from the northern part of the state has committed to the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns.

Zeb Ruddell, from Neville High School, in Monroe, Louisiana, issued a verbal pledge to Louisiana over the weekend.

The Advertiser's Time Buckley alerted us to the offer.

The 6-foot-1, 180-pound Ruddell projects as both a left-handed pitcher, as well as an outfielder.

Ruddell, who will begin his sophomore season in the fall, is scheduled to graduate high school in 2022.
