JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Aug. 10, 2010) - ETSU head baseball coach Tony Skole announced the signing Zach Waters (Woodstock, Ga.) to finalize the 2010-11 class on Tuesday.

"We are excited to welcome Zach into our baseball family," Skole said. "He comes from one of the top high school and summer programs in the state of Georgia.  Zach is a tremendous young man who has a very bright future ahead of him, and his ceiling is very high.  Zach has a lot of versatility as he is a top notch catcher and he can also run it up there pretty good from the mound.  Buccaneer fans are going to enjoy watching this young man develop.  Zach will be a great asset to our campus and community."
 
Waters, a 6-foot-2, 210-pound right-handed pitcher and catcher comes from Etowah High School where he played for coach Greg Robinson.
