Coach Farley on Schmidt: "Tyler is a nice addition to our team after walking-on this past fall. He showed a good feel for pitching, and he's going to get stronger and develop more arm speed in our off-season program. Every good Division I program is looking for tall, lefty pitchers who can throw strikes and change speeds."
