Upland baseball standout Drew Cowley has committed to Cal Poly Pomona.
The school has a good baseball program and it’s close to home which were both big factors in that decision. He also plans to major in engineering, another factor that led him to make the decision.
“I’m close to my family and they’ll be able to come to my games,” Cowley said. “It just was the right fit. All the pieces of the puzzle came together.”
Cowley, a first-team All-Baseline League selection last spring, also visited Cal and was considering a handful of other schools including UC Santa Barbara.
He was invited to a summer showcase at Cal Poly Pomona and the Broncos heavily pursued him after that.
“I am going to go there and work hard and maybe I can get some playing time as a freshman,” he said.
