Rebels add talented Northwestern transfer infielder Anthony Calarco

OXFORD, Miss. — The recently-crowned national champion Ole Miss Rebels picked up an important transfer piece Sunday, garnering a commitment from Anthony Calarco, a first baseman from Northwestern. 

[Ole Miss also added another top transfer Sunday in Ethan Groff. ]

Calarco announced his intent to transfer Sunday via Twitter.

For the 2022 season, Calarco played in 51 games and led the Wildcats with a team-high 13 home runs while hitting .325. He scored 48 runs and notched 54 RBI with a .619 slugging percentage. Calarco was named All-Big 10 first baseman in 2021.

D1Baseball scout Patrick Ebert is impressed with Calarco’.

Here’s what Perfect Game had to say about the Willmett, Illinois native when he was a recruit:

“Anthony Calarco is a 2018 C/RHP with a 6-0 160 lb. frame from Wilmette, IL who attends New Trier Township HS. Young slender athletic build, tall for his age, very projectable physically. Switch-hitter, similar approach from both sides, deep hand load with a long, loose swing, swings hard and creates some bat speed, has a bit more effort and head movement from the right side, calmer and smoother from the left at present, legit switch-hitter who projects power. Athletic actions behind the plate, has some quickness in his exchange, good arm strength with some carry. Also pitched, smooth delivery with a loose arm, 3/4’s arm slot, stays on line well. Fastball topped out at 77 mph, sweeping curveball with some depth, threw strikes and showed some feel for pitching. Very projectable young freshman who has a chance to be pretty good with normal development.”
