Pack9 Teammates Robert Nedry, Alex Sosa Looking to Make Instant Impact
Close friends and now highly-touted Wolfpack teammates Robert Nedry and Alex Sosa go in-depth on their recruitment and look ahead to the summer and the season.
RALEIGH, NC — After missing out on the College World Series for the past two years, the Wolfpack is eager to get back to Omaha. And two best friends who connected through baseball in Florida are looking to bring their chemistry to Raleigh to be key players in that potential return.
Following numerous departures for NC State through the transfer portal, headlined by Cannon Peebles and Payton Green heading to Tennessee and Georgia Tech, respectively, the upcoming Pack9 team offers playing time availability to its 15-person 2023 recruiting class that has already arrived to campus to begin offseason lifts and workouts. These departures don’t include the 2023 MLB Draft which takes place next week.
Two names that look to take advantage of those playing time opportunities out the gate as freshmen are highly-touted freshmen Robert Nedry and Alex Sosa. The duo comes to Raleigh as close friends and are looking to turn the tide of the program and hopeful to earn roles right away for the Pack9.
“Seeing these other guys transfer from the program, it’s obviously not what I want to see,” Nedry explained, “but if the opportunity opens up to play out the gate as a Freshman, I’m going to work hard and try to earn that spot.”
Nedry, a native of Lighthouse, Fla. and a Westminster Academy graduate, comes to NC State at 6-foot-2, 195 pounds with experience at positions all around the infield with shortstop being his primary place on the diamond. During his senior season, Nedry slashed .392/.505/.518 across 27 games.
While in high school, Nedry also played travel ball as part of the Scorpions Baseball Club in Florida, which has now become a scout team for the San Francisco Giants. Nedry was ranked by Perfect Game as the 6th-ranked shortstop and No. 30 player overall in the Sunshine State. Coming in as 9.0 on the Perfect Game grading scale also means Nedry comes in at the threshold of pro draft potential.
Sosa, a native of Viera Florida, and a close teammate for nearly three years with Nedry on the aforementioned Scorpions Baseball Club comes to NC State after committing to the Wolfpack following his freshman year.
