Nebraska baseball welcomed a junior college outfielder with in-state roots to continue a busy stretch of additions.
Luke Sartori — a 2019 Lincoln Southwest graduate — announced on social media Saturday that he would be joining the Huskers this fall. The 6-foot, 190-pounder spent the spring at Hutchinson (Kan.) Community College, where he hit .455 in 19 games. He also swatted four homers, stole four bases and drove in 18 runs during his freshman campaign.
The move comes two days after NU junior outfielder Aaron Palensky signed with the New York Yankees as an undrafted free agent.
Sartori is the fifth new player to join Nebraska since April.
Nebraska basketball made quick work filling the void left by Kobe King.
The Huskers received a commitment from Elijah Wood, who was originally in the 2021 class but will reclassify to 2020 and join Nebraska’s roster this summer. Wood announced his decision about five hours after the Huskers announced King wouldn’t enroll at Nebraska.
Wood is a three-star combo guard from Potomac, Maryland, who attended the Hargrave Military Academy in Virginia. He held offers from Ole Miss, Rhode Island, Tulane, Auburn and Colorado State. Wood was previously committed to Rhode Island but decommitted in April. He’ll be immediately eligible for next season.
