Jantzen Smith signs with KCU

Mason County senior Jantzen Smith will be one of the 25 players Kentucky Christian University will count on to revive its varsity baseball program after a 23-year absence.

Smith signed with KCU this afternoon.

He is one of five or six outfielders that coach Chris Hensley said he expects to rotate.

Hensley mentioned Smith's speed and said he "is going to be a big role in the team."

Smith is sidelined with an injury. He goes back to the doctor on May 8.

Mason County coach Tom Posey told Smith "we're proud of you, you done a great job for us; hopefully, we'll get you back soon."

Smith says he's thinking about going into psychology and getting into an occupational therapy program.
