Three days removed from a 4-A state championship appearance, Fuquay-Varina pitcher Brett Daniels committed to playing baseball at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill on Tuesday morning.

Daniels, a rising senior, had a historic 2012-2013 season for the Bengals. On the mound, Daniels was 12-1 in starts, breaking the Fuquay-Varina single-season record for wins.

As pitcher, Daniels picked up a save in Round 4 of the state playoffs against Green Hope, advancing to the regional series to play Richmond. He went on to start in Game 2 of the series, earning the 8-1 victory. Daniels also played third base for the Bengals.

The only loss Daniels suffered this season as a starter came in Game 3 of the championship series against South Mecklenburg High School, where the Bengals lost 7-4.

At the plate, Daniels was one of the Bengals' most deadly hitters this past season. Batting .432, he recorded 43 hits, 23 runs and 4 home runs. He also had 47 RBIs, breaking Fuquay-Varina's single-season RBI record.

The Bengals went 27-6 on the year en route to one of the team's best seasons in school history. Daniels will play one more season at Fuquay before graduating in 2014 and becoming a Tar Heel.
