Pine Creek soon to be sophomore Riley Cornelio got the attention of baseball programs early and pulled the trigger on committing like he was rolling a double play.

Cornelio announced on Twitter Sunday morning that he will be playing baseball for TCU after he graduates from Pine Creek in 2019.

In 20 games for the Eagles this year, Cornelio batted .300 with a home run and 13 RBIs.

Pine Creek was the No. 1 team based on the Class 5A RPI, but fell to Rocky Mountain in their district championship game.

He is the second Pine Creek player to commit to major program in the last week. Justin Olson announced his commitment to Kentucky last week.

Cornelio's commitment has been reflected in the recruiting database for the class of 2019.
