The 2023 Texas baseball roster continues to take shape as David Pierce looks to re-tool his program with the upcoming MLB draft likely to take a large chunk of contributors from the 2022 squad. The Longhorns added a key piece on Tuesday afternoon, picking up a commitment from USC transfer pitcher Charlie Hurley.
Hurley, who stands at 6'8, tossed 73 innings for the Trojans in 2022. The right-hander ended the season with a 4.19 ERA and compiled 45 strikeouts to go along with 32 walks. Hurley moved to the starting rotation this past season after spending the 2021 season as a reliever. He is the 4th player to commit to Texas out of the transfer portal, joining LHP David Shaw (Rice), C Garrett Guillemette (USC) and RHP Heston Tole (Arkansas).
