NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Trevecca baseball program is pleased to announce the addition of Tyler Wallin to its 2011-2012 recruiting class. Wallin has played the past two seasons at Lincoln (Ill.) College, after prepping at Jimtown High School in Elkhart, Ind. He will have two years of eligibility remaining with the Trojans.

"Ty will provide us with another solid glove for an already talented infield," says Trevecca's interim Head Coach Matt Thomas. "He also has a bat that has a great amount of power that we hope to tap into this year."

The 6-foot infielder led the Lynx in home runs in each of his two seasons in Lincoln. He batted .347 as a freshman, with six doubles, seven home runs, 31 RBI, and a 1.054 OPS. As a sophomore, he smacked seven doubles and four home runs, helping the team to its first-ever top 20 national ranking.

He excelled off the field as well, earning the Junior College Award for Superior Academic Achievement, formerly known as the NJCAA Academic All-American Award.

At Jimtown, Wallin was a three-year middle infield starter for the Jimmies. He was named team MVP as a senior, when he batted .427 to earn All-Conference and Indiana East All-Star honors. He also played tennis at Jimtown, helping his team to four consecutive conference championships and earning all-conference and team MVP honors as a senior.

"We have had an opportunity to bring in some very strong student-athletes in this year's recruiting class, and Ty is certainly no exception," adds Coach Thomas. "His work ethic inside the classroom and on the playing field will be tough to match."
