Alleman's Daniel Cutkomp committed to John A. Logan College to play baseball on Thursday.

Cutkomp hit .341 in 123 at-bats and drove in 34 runs for the Class 2A state runner-up Pioneer team last season. He was a member of The Dispatch and The Rock Island Argus 2011 All-Metro baseball team.

Cutkomp chose playing baseball at John A. Logan over Heartland Community College and Augusta College. He also had offers to play both golf and baseball at Black Hawk College.

"They have built a great program, and I felt that I was wanted there by the coaching staff more than the other colleges," Cutkomp said, "I just felt like Logan was the best fit."
