On the phone with members of the Tobias family this morning and they were able to share the good news with me, that Josh Tobias, shortstop Southeast Guilford Falcons, has verbally committed to attend the University of Florida and he will play baseball for the UF Gators.
Josh Tobias will be a Gator in 2011/2012 and the Tobias family made the commitment official with the Gators last evening. Josh(SEG Class of 2011), joins other players that we have been tracking for many years here at the site, Ray Crawford(UNCG), George Carter(UNC-Chapel Hill) and Cal Sutphin(Liberty University) that have committed early.
Several teams were in line for Josh’s services and his top five choices came down to, although, not in this specific order:
Josh received several offers and he also heard from The College of Charleston, UNCC(Charlotte) and Liberty University.
Good luck to the Josh and the Gators and to Southeast Guilford and their new head coach David Beasley as Josh will be around SEG for two more years working to help the Falcons……

CANES 2011 MASHER JOSHUA TOBIAS COMMITS TO FLORIDA GATORS
Southeast Guilford 2011 Infielder and Canes 16’s product Joshua Tobias recently made a verbal commitment to the University of Florida Gators. Canes Coach Jeff Petty stated “Josh has a suit case full of tools and they play at the yard everyday. He can run, hit for average and has tons of power. Josh is one of the top hitters in our program’s 5 year history. I would say he has Big League power right now! I respect Josh immensely because of the work he puts into the game on a regular basis. After recently going 4 for 4 with 2 HR’s in a game, he walked up to me and said, “Coach can I borrow both buckets of baseballs? Me and my dad are gonna hit and I also need more groundballs.” This is after the kid went 4 for 4 in 95 degree heat! This kid is a winner and a huge piece of the puzzle in our National Championship run. You can see Tobias with the National Championship Canes for the next year and a half. Congrats to Josh and his family.”
