MSU baseball signs D-I transfer

Minot State baseball coach Brock Weppler announced Monday the addition of Jordan Schulz, a transfer from Division I Stetson University.

Schulz is a 6-foot-3, 196-pound lefty outfielder originally from Strasbourg, Sask., and will have three seasons of eligibility remaining.

“Jordan has a really high ceiling, a good work ethic and will come in right away and compete for a spot to our lineup,” Weppler said in a press release. “It’s great to have three years with him; you want a kid like that a part of the program for three years. Any time you can get a Division I transfer, you are happy, but to have him with us for three seasons is a bonus.”

In one season at Stetson, Schulz finished with 10 hits in 54 at-bats. He appeared in 38 games for the Hatters, making 11 starts and helping Stetson to a 26-34 record.

Schulz had offers from multiple Division I schools out of high school and chose Stetson over Texas State, Illinois State, Kentucky and Nebraska. He becomes Minot State’s seventh signing of the season, joining four incoming freshmen and two junior college transfers.

Beavers add juco forward

The Minot State men’s basketball team added some shooting range with the signing of junior college forward Michael Pelo. Coach Matt Murken announced the addition Monday in a press release.

Pelo, a 6-foot-4, 205-pound forward from Charleston, Utah, played the past two seasons at Western Wyoming Community College. He averaged 11.2 points and 3.3 rebounds and hit 64 3-pointers last season.

“I am very excited to add a player of Mike’s caliber to our program,” Murken said. “He has been a consistent scorer in his two years of junior college basketball and shown a great ability to stretch the floor with his shooting ability.”

Pelo started his collegiate career at Division II Weber State after a stellar prep campaign at Wasatch High School, where he was named to the Utah 3A all-state team. He also played one season at Utah Valley University.
