Nov. 27, 2013
MALIBU, Calif. – Pepperdine Baseball Head Coach Steve Rodriguez announced the signing of OF/RHP Jordan Qsar to a National Letter of Intent this week. Qsar is a 6-3 athlete hailing from Valhalla High School in El Cajon, Calif.
Qsar is the 26th rated outfielder in the state of California and is ranked in the top 230 in the nation according to Perfect Game.
“Jordan is a tremendous athlete that should help us with his speed and his versatility,” said Rodriguez. “He is a well-rounded athlete and can help on the mound also. He is a left-handed batter that has the ability to use all parts of the field, and on the mound he will be very affective as well.”
Qsar was an All-Grossmont Hills League honoree and was named to the Upperclass Perfect Game All-Tournament Team last season. He was also the 2013 Team Offensive MVP and made the MLB South Scout Ball All-Star Team.
As a standout outfielder Qsar hit .333 scoring 27 runs and driving in 21 on 39 hits. He posted 12 doubles and three home runs as well. In 15 innings of work on the mound Qsar posted a 1.87 ERA with four saves and 10 strikeouts.
An excellent student as well, Qsar was named to the San Diego Union Tribune All-Academic Team and received the Outstanding Underclassmen award as well. Qsar has carried better than a 4.0 GPA each year of high school.
He played for the San Diego Show travel ball team and for the Kansas City Royals and Tampa Bay Rays scout teams.
“I chose Pepperdine because of the high-end level of academics, great coaching staff, and the near perfect weather,” said Qsar, who plans to major in accounting. “It was an easy choice the second I stepped on campus.”
