Castillo Verbally Commits to Alabama

SEALE, Ala. (WTVM) - Russell County righthander Ray Castillo has verbally committed to Alabama.

As a junior last season, Castillo was one of the keys to the Warriors run to the Alabama 5A state semifinals.

He put up some seriously impressive numbers. Castillo was 10-and-1 with an ERA of 2.01 in 12 starts. He pitched 66 and a third innings, striking out 115 and walking just 32, a great ratio, while holding opposing hitters to a .180 average. Castillo threw seven complete games, including three shutouts.

He'll join former Warrior righthander Jay Shaw, who signed with the Tide last season.
