Coach Corbin Quote: “Luke went through Tommy John surgery early this summer and is rehabbing. Although he has not been a participant yet, this young man has a chance to really impact our pitching staff when he gets healthy. He is athletic and showed a special arm in high school. He has been very committed to his rehab and though he will medically redshirt this season, I have no doubt he will find a different way to contribute to our team while he is not playing.”
