Moline senior pitcher Dallas DeVrieze verbally committed to Appalachian State on Thursday afternoon moments after receiving a scholarship offer. DeVrieze will sign his national letter-of-intent early next week.

"I'm just really excited for this great opportunity," DeVrieze said.

Appalachian State, in Boone, N.C., won the Southern Conference title and was one win away from advancing into the NCAA Super Regionals last season.

Last season, DeVrieze compiled a 6-3 record with a 2.58 ERA in 57 innings. He threw five complete games and two shutouts. During the summer, he helped lead Moline Post 246 to the American Legion World Series.

DeVrieze is the second Moline baseball player to commit to Appalachian State. Earlier this week, senior outfielder Matt Brill signed with the Mountaineers.
