Before he earns his first varsity at-bat, Blake Peterson has decided where hell take his cuts in college.

Peterson gave a verbal commitment to UTs baseball program on Wednesday. In a post on Twitter, Peterson said that I was born here and Ive been raised here, burnt orange runs through my veins.

Peterson is a rising sophomore and utility player at Austins Westlake High. He becomes the fourth member of Texas 2023 recruiting class. Previously, the Longhorns received commitments from Rockwall infielder Brayden Randle, Denton Guyer utility player Lane Allen and Conroe Oak Ridge pitcher Hayden Morris.

Peterson plays for the Lonestar Baseball Club during the summer. This spring, he was a member of Westlakes junior varsity program. Peterson will soon join a varsity team that went 13-1-1 during a coronavirus-shortened season. The Chaparrals wont need a third baseman in 2021 since Oregon State pledge Reece MacRae starts at that position, but Westlake coach JT Blair said that Peterson can really play anywhere.

The skys the limit for him, Blair told the American-Statesman on Wednesday. Hes got a great work ethic. I dont see him getting anything but better.
