Mooresville dual-sport athlete Nick Wiley accepts baseball scholarship

MOORESVILLE, Ind. — Nick Wiley, senior pitching prospect and dual-sport athlete for the Mooresville Pioneers, recently accepted a baseball scholarship to Indiana Wesleyan University.

Wiley originally announced his commitment to Indiana Wesleyan on social media back in August of 2021. However, the news was made public before Wiley even began his senior year of high school, indicating that he was a coveted recruit within the state of Indiana.

What has Wiley’s baseball journey been like? Many consider him to be a two-way prospect, as he thrives at both pitching and hitting. The 6-foot-6 right-hander from Mooresville is capable of throwing a 86 mph fastball and 70 mph breaking ball.

Those are impressive numbers, to say the least.

During the summer of 2021, Wiley played for the Indiana Twins (now Indiana Canes) traveling baseball team, which helps develop up-and-coming amateur baseball players.

Wiley not only excelled as a pitcher for the Twins, but he also spent time at the first base position. As a hitter, he demonstrated incredible bat speed and power. He hit two home runs to straight away center field in a single exhibition game for the Twins, putting his two-way abilities on full display.

In a showcase back in 2020 for Indiana Prep Baseball Report, Wiley got the opportunity to demonstrate his talents, throwing 73 mph curveballs and 74 mph changeups.

His hitting was also impressive. He had an average exit velocity of 87.9 mph and a max distance of 336 feet.

Now in his senior year at Mooresville, Wiley is currently focusing his attention on basketball. He’s in his third consecutive year playing for the varsity team and continues to play a bigger role each season.

Although the Pioneer’s basketball team had a mediocre 2020-21 season, finishing 12-11 overall, Mooresville is already off to a 7-3 start and undefeated against Mid-State opponents.

Through 10 games thus far, Wiley is averaging 6.0 point per game and 3.0 rebounds per game.

Wiley’s athletic potential is certainly something to behold. The Mooresville prospect has incredible versatility as both a baseball and basketball player.

“I would like to thank coach Rich Benjamin for the opportunity to become a Wildcat,” Wiley said in his announcement back in August, expressing gratitude to his future baseball coach at Indiana Wesleyan.

He then thanked his teammates, coaches and family members for helping him get to where he is today.

“[The] job’s not finished,” he said.

Wiley and the Pioneers will begin their baseball season against Decatur Central on April 12 at 5:30 p.m.
