HiToms Add Luke Davis and Colby Wilkerson to 2021 Roster
High Point/Thomasville, NC – The High Point-Thomasville HiToms are excited to announce the addition of third-year HiTom pitcher and Kernersville native Luke Davis, as well as highly-touted shortstop Colby Wilkerson to the 2021 HiToms roster.
Davis transferred from Louisburg College to Appalachian State after the 2019 season. The right-hander made five appearances for the HiToms in 2020, racking up 20 strikeouts in 13.2 innings pitched. Davis has also pitched for the Post 87 HiToms American Legion team.
“We are very excited to have Luke back with the HiToms. He has proven to be a very reliable starter for the HiToms over the last two summers,” HiToms Head Coach Scott Davis said. “He has 3 pitches that he can throw for strikes at any time in the count, and those are assets that any club would love to have. We look for Luke to have another very productive summer for us.”
Wilkerson was ranked as the eighth-best shortstop in North Carolina coming out of Kerr Vance Academy, where he won three state championships under his father, Head Coach Tom Wilkerson. This season for the University of North Carolina, Wilkerson has batted .276, recording 16 hits and driving in five runs, including a three-RBI performance in a win against Pittsburgh.
