TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (August 19, 2018) – Tallahassee Community College baseball standout Christian Dearman has committed to Florida International University and will join the Panthers' program this fall. 

Dearman, a native of Pembroke Pines, Fla., pitched for head coach Mike McLeod's Eagles in 2017 and 2018, tallying a career record of 4-2 with two saves and a 2.18 ERA. 

Dearman, a 6-foot-1 right-hander, appeared in just seven games as a freshman, the result of a season-ending injury two weeks into the season. Though all seven appearances came in relief, he went 2-1 and posted two saves. 

He returned to the mound in 2018 and was again a key member of the Eagles' pitching staff. In 17 games, he went 2-1 with a 1.87 ERA and 28 strikeouts in 33.2 innings. 

Located in Miami, Fla., the NCAA Division I Panthers compete in Conference USA.
