WESTFIELD (April 08, 2020) Three players from the Indiana Bulls Baseball program have made verbal commitments to play for Vanderbilt University upon high school graduation.

JD Rogers is expected to join the team in 2021. Rogers plays outfield and pitches, and currently attends Carmel High School. His commitment date was December 3, 2019.

“I’ve always wanted to go to Vanderbilt,” Rogers said. “I am very excited for the future. The academics of the school and the coaches are amazing.”

Brebeuf High School’s Andrew Dutkanych IV is expected to join the team in 2022. Dutkanych is a pitcher and committed on August 26, 2019.

“I couldn’t imagine anywhere else I’d want to go,” Dutkanych IV said. “I’ve wanted to play college baseball since I was eight years old. I said I would go to Vanderbilt, then try to play in the MLB. Everything I do is for baseball.”

In 2023, Max Clark is expected to join the Vanderbilt Commodores. Clark attends Franklin Community High School and is an outfielder and pitches. His commitment date was November 23, 2019.

“I’m more than excited! It definitely puts a little bit of pressure on me, but I love it,” Max Clark said. “Going into a season not only knowing that I represent the Indiana Bulls and my high school, but also the No. 1 Division I school in the country is a very special feeling. Without the Indiana Bulls, I would have never been in this position. They helped me get where I needed to be.”

“These three young men are remarkable players,” Indiana Bulls Baseball Director of Operations Scott French said. “They have put in tremendous work with our organization as well as personally to grow as players and become the best they can be. We are excited to watch their progress as they continue grow in their high school programs, with Indiana Bulls Baseball and eventually in their college careers.”

The three players listed above are expected to join the team in their respective years, however, former Indiana Bulls Baseball player Michael Doolin is currently a freshman on Vanderbilt’s team.

“To have four Indiana Bulls Baseball alum preparing to play together at the same university is exciting,” French said. “Their hard work speaks for the dedication of our players, as well as the support our organization gives these young men to help make their dreams come true.”
