Jackson McClain, a rising senior at Ooltewah High School, has verbally committed to Yale University. He will continue his baseball career after high school in New Haven, CT as a Yale Bulldog.
The Yale baseball program selected Jackson as a pitcher for the 2013-14 team roster shortly after seeing his impressive 1-0 win in Atlanta at Perfect Game.
McClain, who plays for the reigning district champion Owls varsity baseball team, is an intimidating sight for a batter facing the 6'4", 220 pound LHP.
Jackson has pitched for the Owls varsity baseball team since his sophomore year.
He is also the center on the Owls football team and is a National Honor and Merit Scholar with a 3.93 GPA at Ooltewah High.
