Justin Olson ended his recruitment process early. The Pine Creek junior-to-be has committed to play baseball for the University of Kentucky.

Olson made the announcement on Twitter Sunday night.

As a sophomore, Olson was a force at the plate for the Eagles. He batted .409 while blasting nine home runs and registering 27 RBIs.

He also made six appearances on the mound where he went 3-0 with a 1.27 ERA. He struck out 36 hitters in 22 innings on the bump.

The Eagles came into the Class 5A district tournament as the No. 1 overall seed, but lost to Rocky Mountain in the district championship game.

Olson's commitment has been updated to the recruiting database class of 2018.
