Cal Conley, a redshirt freshman, transferred from the University of Miami (FL) last winter is one of the highly touted acquisitions of the Red Raiders coming into the 2020 season. Conley’s journey to Tech was filled with drama. Miami had a number of players that left at the end of the 2018 season, Conley being among them. As a result he had to sit out the 2019 season per NCAA transfer rules but is ready to go in 2020.

During his senior year, Cal Conley was an absolute stud at the plate. The no. 10 ranked player in the state of Ohio notched two home runs, 22 RBI’s, and 24 runs while also going 11-13 in stolen bases. Conley completed the year with an average of .475 - an undeniably strong showing by anybody. His efforts at the plate would also lead his school towards back-to-back Connie Mack World Series titles with the Midland Redskins; hitting .485, three home runs, and 12 RBI’s. The shortstop joins the likes of preseason All-American senior Brian Klein, sophomore Dru Baker, and junior Dylan Neuse. All with whom Conley can compete with for the meat of the lineup during the 2020 season.
