Knights Sign Washington State's Camus, Schroeder.

The Knights have signed Washington State right-handed pitchers Kellen Camus and freshman Jacob Schroeder (pictured) for the 2013 season. Camus is a junior from Olympia; Wash.; Schroeder is a sophomore from Ferndale, Wash.

Camus (5-9, 190) was 3-1 with a 3.44 ERA in 29 appearances in 2012, with two saves and 24 strikeouts in 36.2 innings. He was also 3-1 in 10 games as a freshman in 2011, with a 5.47 ERA and 16 strikeouts in 14.2 innings.

Camus played for Waterloo (Iowa) in the Northwoods League in 2012 and was 2-3 in 16 games, with a 2.50 ERA and five saves and 40 strikeouts in 32.1 innings. In 2011, Camus played for Winchester (Va.) in the Valley League and was 4-0, 1.41 in seven games, with 22 strikeouts in 38.1 innings.

He lettered in baseball, basketball and football at Capital High in Olympia and was second-team all-league for baseball and football. He played in the all-state baseball game, and was an academic All-American.

Schroeder is a 6-7, 205-pound freshman who was a second-team All-Northwest Conference selection as a junior and senior. He also earned four letters in basketball.

WSU coach Donnie Marbut called Schroder one of the more projectable players in Washington, as he has not reached full maturity. He was ranked 18th on Baseball Northwest's Class of 2012 Super Sixty Northwest High School Top Prospect List, and was 10th among right-handed pitchers.

"We have seen him throw multiple pitches for strikes with a fastball in the upper 80s," Marbut said. "Jacob also plays basketball and is a great student. You put all those together and you feel like there is someone special on his way to Pullman."
