Chuo University baseball manager Yoshimasa Takahashi told reporters he was happy to hear the news, especially since he was a player the team reached out to before Koshien.

Nikkan Sports reports that lefty Konan pitcher Yosuke Shimabukuro appears to be heading to Chuo University.  Not too much of a surprise since there were already a number of rumors pointing to him going to college.

    Him going to college isn’t surprising, but I’m vaguely surprised he’s not trying to get into a Big 6 college instead, unless he WANTS to mostly sail under the radar as a college player, which from his personality wouldn’t surprise me. Though Chuo is going to be in dire need of pitching next year after both their aces graduate and it’d be a good place for a freshman to actually get a good chunk of playing time in league games, I suppose.
