Reggie Meyer has signed a National Letter of Intent (NLI) to join the University of Minnesota baseball program. Meyer currently attends Totino-Grace High School, where he is a pitcher for the Eagles.

Meyer, a 6-foot-4 right-hander from New Brighton, Minn., is the eighth member of the Golden Gophers’ signing class. Gophers junior pitcher Ben Meyer is Reggie’s older brother.

As a junior in 2013, Meyer received second-team Star Tribune All-Metro and All-North Suburban Conference honors. He held a 5-2 record and 1.11 ERA as Totino-Grace tied for the conference championship.

"Reggie is a great match for Gopher Baseball because of his athleticism, character and commitment to academics,” Minnesota pitching coach Todd Oakes said. “He is a well-rounded young man from a solid family and a pitcher with a lot of upside potential. He has the foundation to be a three-pitch strike thrower with a quiet, but competitive, attitude that will add to the quality and depth of the Gopher pitching staff."

Also a star on the basketball court, Meyer led the Eagles to the North Suburban title this past winter. He averaged 25 points and nine rebounds per game on his way to being named conference MVP.

"Reggie was also an outstanding high school basketball player and a leader among his teammates and peers," Oakes said.

In the classroom, Meyer is an honor roll student. His father, Bob, played for Minnesota in John Anderson’s first season as head coach.

“I want to go to the U of M because they have great coaches and a great team,” Meyer said.

Meyer joins Alex Boxwell (Coon Rapids, Minn.), Micah Coffey (Batavia, Ill.), Jeff Fasching (St. Cloud, Minn.), Lucas Gilbreath (Westminster, Colo.), Toby Hanson (Delano, Minn.), Fred Manke (Lodi, Wis.) and Luke Pettersen (Minnetonka, Minn.) in the Gophers’ signing class for 2014-15.
