OU baseball: Mustang’s Dax Fulton switches commitment from Vanderbilt to Sooners

Mustang senior pitcher Dax Fulton has decommitted from Vanderbilt to join Oklahoma.

Fulton recently updated his biography on Twitter to reflect he is committed to OU.

Fulton is one of the best players in the state. The 6-foot-6 southpaw helped Mustang win the Class 6A state championship as a freshman. He pitched a complete game in a 10-4 win over Westmoore in the title game. The victory ended a 35-year championship drought for the Broncos.

Fulton is being recruited as a pitcher, but he has been an effective hitter in high school. He had a .427 batting average last season.

Fulton is the eighth-best high school prospect for the 2020 MLB Draft, according to MLB.com.
