No. 6 Kieran Garner

Kieran GarnerClass of 2017 ranked 4th in Maryland and No. 135 overall Kieran Garner came onto the Maryland scene very early after his performance at the Southern Maryland winter camp in January.  Garner pitched up to 87 with his projectable frame. He then followed that up with another excellent performance at the Maryland Preseason ID, getting up to 88 on the mound and started to show potential with the breaking ball. 

Garner carried that momentum into the spring being one of the leading arms on the River Hill pitching staff and will anchor the staff this upcoming 2016 season. The junior also helped lead his legion team to the state playoffs over the summer. Garner’s summer ended with his verbal commitment to Maryland.
