    Does anybody have a list of or a link to a listing of next year's recruits? I would like to see what we may have coming in and who we signed who likely will be drafted...

    Per Perfect Game, UF's class is #3 with 5 Top 100 recruits (14 overall). UNC is #1. The SWAC was #5. Interestingly, the SWAC also has 5 Top 100 but only 11 signees compared to UF's 14.

    So these guys actually signed with us and we didn't lose any to early MLB entry?

    I remember a couple of years ago we lost quite a few commits to the MLB and I thought that really hurt us last year because we just almost no one to replace all those losses we had from our CWS team the year before.

    MLB draft has not happened yet. So, we could still lose several of these guys.

    Guthrie is the smaller, scrappy type that seems destined for 2nd, and Hicks is a tall lanky 3B type. Both are very capable at SS, just feel they may be better at other spots. Deacon Liput in the 2015 class may be the SS after Martin

    hopefully we're bringing in some great hitting, with some power to boot. We were severely lacking in both departments this season.

    Yes, let's hope some of these incoming kids can actually hit the ball. Three catchers have been signed. Guess they figure Taylor is gone in the draft.

    Had his photo made wearing a Dodger uniform, hugging Tommy Lasorda. I don't think he is going to make it to campus.

    It will come down to money like everything else. If they don't offer him enough, he can go to college. They have until the first day of class to reach an agreement I think.

    It's just a good policy to never expect 1st round picks to make it to school. For every Karsten Whitson or Gerrit Cole there are 20 guys who sign.
