One more member of the 2014 Brighton High School baseball team is headed to play at the next level. 

Following Colton Hathcock (University of Memphis) and Jared Webb (Bethel University), both of whom signed weeks ago, Colby Poston made his college choice official Monday morning. 

He'll suit up Christian Brothers University in Memphis next year. 

"I just felt like it was the place for me to be," Poston said. "I like the school and the academics are strong. I've also got some friends going there."

A starter since he was a sophomore, Poston played centerfield and hit leadoff for the Cardinals last season. In addition to batting .444 with two homers, 26 stolen bases and 22 RBIs, Poston was named all-district and all-tournament. 

Brian Oswalt, Brighton's head coach who retired after last season, said he saw Poston gradually improve during his career at Brighton. 

"We got him in the weight room and you could tell he got better and stronger from his sophomore season," Oswalt said. "He's tough to get out and he's got great speed. They're getting a good hitter, and a good fielder too."
