Sophomore standout Brady Huebbe has committed to Eastern Illinois University to continue his academic and athletic career.

Huebbe is a right-handed pitcher who doubles as a shortstop this year for the Eagles.

On the mound last year, Huebbe went 1-0 with 17 strikeouts in 15.2 innings. At the plate, Huebbe batted a promising .406 with 4 home runs and 30 runs batted in.

Huebbe will again be leading the charge for the Eagles come the 2018 season.

Huebbe signed with IVCC in 2016 to play both basketball and baseball for the Eagles.

This year, Huebbe elected to stick with baseball, so he will not be playing on the Eagles basketball team in the upcoming season.

Last year, Huebbe was one of three Eagles named to the All-Arrowhead All-Conference team for baseball.

He also earned Academic All-Arrowhead honors for the Eagles.

Huebbe played his high school ball for the La Salle-Peru High School Cavaliers.
