2019 INF Tanner Mink Commits to South Florida

Congrats on your new commitment! What is it about the University of South Florida that excites you the most?

I’ll be playing not only for great school but I’m basically home and that’s something that excites me!

You were part of the inaugural group for Top Tier Roos and you guys made quite the splash in year one. Tell us about your experience and what it means to wear the TT?

This past summer playing for the Top Tier Roos was something I will always remember. Not only the great memories we made traveling around the country, but the best part is wearing the Top Tier jersey and being apart of a winning organization!

Talk a little bit about the recruiting process and how everything went down.  

I had a few good options at the time and it came down to my hometown school. The coaches followed me throughout the summer and showed interest, then I showcased my abilities at a recent camp and they offered.  

What were some of the priorities you looked at when deciding where you wanted to commit?

I mostly wanted to stay in state, so USF in right at home. I also wanted to go to a school where I have a good opportunity to play early in my career. I'll have to prove myself to find a spot on the field and do what I do best!

What challenges do you see ahead of you before you get to campus?

Before I get to campus I need to get stronger and faster as well as continue to learn the little things in the game to not only help me but also for my team to succeed.

What are some of the goals you have set for yourself as a college baseball player?

As a college baseball player I need to set goals on the field to help my team succeed and work to move myself to the next level in baseball and also set goals for myself in the classroom.

Is there anybody you would like to give a shout-out or thanks to?

First I want to thank my parents. They do so much and sacrifice everything for me and my brother, and always push me to be my best. I also want to thank the Top Tier organization for everything they do and all the coaches involved that got me to where I'm at today.
