Michigan baseball coach Erik Bakich added an addition to the Wolverine family earlier this week from Tyler Inge, a freshman infielder at Detroit Country Day and the son of former Detroit Tigers’ third baseman Brandon Inge. The news was made official on Twitter.
“I am extremely proud to announce my commitment to the University of Michigan to continue my academic and athletic career,” the tweet reads. “Thank you to my family, friends and coaches for the support in making this dream become a reality. No better baseball culture.”
The 5-foot-11, 155-pounder in the class of 2024 is listed as a middle infielder.
An evaluation made by Prep Baseball Report reads the following:
Fluid during batting practice, Inge clocked an exit velocity of 86 mph. Began in a tall stance with a slow controlled load, then used a toe tap. Has quick bat speed, upward long swing plane and good extension on his finish. Found multiple barrels with loud contact. Pull side approach. In the infield, had a live arm with throws that topped out at 85 mph. In the 60-yard dash, his time was 7.45.
Brandon was hired at U-M as a volunteer assistant coach back in January, so Tyler’s commitment couldn’t be more perfect for the Inge family. Hopefully he has his father’s clutch gene and is able to deliver in big situations in Ann Arbor.
