    Didn’t realize McConnell was a draft eligible sophomore.

    Include supplemental picks, that’s 4 kids bumping the 1st round, excluding HS and Juco kids who will obviously factor in. Pretty solid statement about the 2017 class so far. If they went beyond 50, I’d guess we would see Butler and McMullen’s names.

    Makes you realize what a good eye for talent Sully has....and how much scouts respect Sully's eye for talent. This team is going to have a bit of sleeper quality to it, but the potential is still thru the roof

    I think that Butler is moving up. I sit in seats that are better than where the scouts usually stand and if I have an open one I invite them down to sit with me. A number of scouts early last season asked me about Butler's velocity and they took notes when I told them that he was sometimes hitting the low 90's with movement. They all loved his curveball and the fact that he was a lefty. The fact that he could reach the low 90's now is probably an important data point to them. These scouts also had extensive experience watching him in HS where I bet he was throwing fastballs somewhere in the mid to upper 80's.

    What a program Sully has built!
    Might be the best coach hired at Fl.
    Who would you rank over Sully.
    Wise- get 1 title and agree
    Holloway track coach.
    There are a few choices, who you got as best hire at Fl

    Sully just grabbed another that will be a good one in the kid Nesbitt from LaBelle. Glad Sully keeps an eye on SW Florida. With Venice, Canterbury, Verot, Riverdale, Sarasota, LaBelle and others there are some very talented programs.
