Head coach Neale Richardson and Bobcat Baseball are excited to announce the signing of two standouts; Kole Jenks from Platte County, Missouri and Brody Baumann form Ozark, Missouri. 

Kole Jenks is a left-handed pitcher from Platte County (MO) High School and was a three-sport letterman for the Pirates. In addition to three years on the varsity baseball team, he was also a member of the varsity soccer and basketball teams. Kole is also a leader in the classroom, earning academic honor roll all four years of high school. He was member of the National Honor Society, Pirates R.O.C.K., character council and a student leader in the FCA.  During his free time, Kole enjoys fishing, hanging out with friends, working out and playing golf.  

Brody Baumann is an infielder/pitcher from Ozark (MO) High School.  "I am very excited to join the C of O family. I loved the atmosphere that the team and campus had when I visited," he said. Brody was a major part of the pitching rotation at Ozark High School and will likely continue to pitch while at College of the Ozarks. However, he was also an all-conference utility player in high school, leading the Tigers in runs batted in. He will also see time on the Bobcats' infield. Brody was a member of Ozark's JROTC Rifle Team that won a state title, ultimately finishing eighth in the nation. "I can't wait to be a Bobcat," Baumann said.
