The University of the Cumberlands (UC) Baseball program and Head Coach Brad Shelton would like to announce the signing of Victor Morel.
Morel is a middle infielder from Guilford Tech Community College in North Carolina. This season, Victor, a leadoff hitter, led his team in stolen bases with 23 and posted a .295 average. He tallied 44 hits and scored 28 runs during the season. Morel was named NJCAA All Region X (2nd Team) following the 2012 season.
Coach Shelton commented about the signing of Morel, "Victor is a skilled defender and is a table setter type of hitter. His coach at Mountain State Academy was one of the best shortstops I ever coached (John Sullivan). I am sure Sully has prepared Victor for what it means to be a Patriot. We are excited he is going to be part of our program."
