Congratulations to Katy Seven Lakes 2016 grad CJ Varela on your commitment to Oklahoma State!

CJ has always taken the mound with a business like demeanor. He takes the ball and competes, period. He's not a big guy but he throws with conviction. This summer he really blossomed as he took on a role to pitch in big games.

His aggressiveness, fearlessness, and 90mph fastball earned him the attention of major college programs all over the country.

Congratulations to CJ and the Varela family! Your ceiling is high and we have no doubt that you're going to do big things at the next level.

Go Pokes!
