Georgia State baseball signee Joseph Brandon is a first-team selection on Collegiate Baseball's 2018 Pre-Season High School All America team.

The right-handed pitcher from Loganville (Ga.) High School also earned first-team All-America accolades from Collegiate Baseball following his junior season, when he led Loganville to the 2017 Class AAAA state title. Brandon was a first-team all-state honoree and Player of the Year in Class AAAA by Georgia Dugout Preview magazine.

Brandon is one of eight fall signees for head coach Greg Frady's Panthers, who also inked Brandon's Loganville teammate Seth Clark.

Georgia State opens the 2018 season on Feb. 16, hosting Bradley at 4 p.m. at the GSU Baseball Complex.
