NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Trevecca baseball program is excited to announce the signing of pitcher Ryne Rayburn of Etowah, Tenn., to its 2011-2012 recruiting class. Rayburn comes to TNU from Columbia State Community College, after a prep career at McMinn Central High School. He will have two years of eligibility remaining with the Trojans.
 

"We're really thrilled to add Ryne to the roster for next season," says Trojans' pitching coach Luke Brown. "He has a chance to be a good go-to guy out of the pen for us."

Rayburn made a total of 10 appearances during his two years playing for Coach Mike Corn at Columbia State, compiling an 0-1 record while allowing 14 hits and 9 earned runs in 9.1 innings pitched, with five strikeouts and seven walks.
 
At McMinn Central, Rayburn played for Coach Travis Hart, earning District Pitcher of the Year and Team MVP honors in 2009. He also played basketball for the Chargers, earning All-District honors in 2008 and 2009.
 
"Ryne brings a big frame and potential power that we lost last year," adds Coach Brown. "I look for him to eat up significant innings next spring."
 

Ryne is the son of Tony and Shannon Rayburn.
