Versatile Redlands High School standout Brian Landon has committed to Cal State Fullerton for baseball.

He was also a starter on the basketball team as well as an All-Citrus Belt League performer in football.

On the diamond he excelled as a pitcher and outfielder. As a pitcher he went 5-3 with a 1.77 ERA in 11 appearances with 41 strikeouts in 47 innings. He also hit ,323 with seven doubles, two triples, 10 stolen bases and 15 runs scored.

He was also considering soon-to-be Division I Cal Baptist.

Fullerton head coach Rick Vanderhook saw Landon at a showcase over the summer.

“I really liked the campus and it has a great baseball program,” Landon said. “I like that it’s close to home but not too close also.”

Landon said that he consulted with Vanderhook before deciding to play the other sports.

“I know that can be a concern,” he said. “But they said to go ahead. They liked that I was staying in shape and playing other sports. I appreciated that.”

Landon is still undecided on a major.
