Region 8 Sports Extra: JHS baseball player Josh Hyneman on commitment to Arkansas

JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - One of the top high school baseball players in northeast Arkansas has made his college decision.

JHS rising junior Josh Hyneman verbally committed to Arkansas over the weekend.

Hyneman will continue a long line of family members who have attended school in Fayetteville.

“Ah man I’m really excited. I’ve always wanted to be a Razorback. My family we always grew up around everybody being a Hogs fan, even living in Jonesboro, just always being a Razorback has been a big dream for me,” Hyneman said.

Earlier this year Hyneman tore his meniscus and was later cleared to play for the Hurricane just before the start of the year, but then the season was cancelled due to COVID-19.

“I didn’t get to play any of my high school season which was really a bummer,” Hyneman said.

Josh has finally returned to the diamond in the last few weeks. He is currently playing with his travel team the Arkansas Sticks in various tournament around the country.
