    #20 overall.

    He's gone folks.

    Congrats to Crawford and Sully for another top pick. Recruits do follow stuff like this. Seeing guys coming to school and still getting drafted in the 1st round does nothing but help promote Sully and this program.

    Congratulations to Jonathan. I enjoyed watching him pitch for the Gators. I was there for the no-no / nearly perfect game and many others. Hope his success continues.

    Where are you getting the draft data from?

    Looks like Arroyo was another 1st rounder.

    One interesting note. You have to be impressed with Sully and his recruiting eye. Here is a kid in Arroyo who was ranked around the 100th player in the draft. The draft guys were talking about how San Francisco does a lot of research on their picks and have been known to make some interesting picks. But like they said, it seems to be working for them. Just reaffirms Sully's recruiting ability as a scout.

    Sully's staff are former pro-scouts. Makes you wonder if Sully's interest in a player increases their value to MLB.

    thanks for the draft link btw.

    I'm sure teams know that UF recruits are usually pretty well scouted by our staff. And your right, our whole coaching staff is full of scouts haha.
