Dale Thomas - Baseball - Coastal Carolina University Athletics (goccusports.com)
Still doesn’t make up for Omaha in 2016 but we are getting close given Riopelle last year!
Since this post contained no real information besides the player's bio, I looked elsewhere (another site) and found that Dale Thomas has transferred to UF. Just a couple more words in the title or the actual post would have let us all know what was gong on.
Is he saying for next year?
Dale Thomas (Coastal Carolina) and Colby Thomas (Mercer) are two different dudes...
Riopelle? He will be drafted highly this draft and be gone. Good for him.
Thought I saw rounds 7-10 and BT probably staying. Maybe bad info?
No prob here w the title and appreciate the effort to let know what was “gong” on.
Uh oh. The typo poilce are out.
10 sac bunts and a triple. Sounds like a player. Glad to have him.
I would think we will see more and more transfers from schools like Mercer, Coastal, Samford, [Insert Directional Name] State schools etc as this year alone produced Sonny D, BT Riopelle, Bertrand (ND), Temple (ND), etc.
Some good HS kids are going to end up at these smaller schools and then transfer in for 1-2 years to try to raise their draft status. Makes a lot of sense.
The MLB draft is a complete crap shoot for pitchers out of HS. It stands to reason that recruiting HS pitchers is no different. Why take as much risk for your scholarship dollars on FR?
We’re going to start seeing more and more of it in the revenue sports as well. Heck, in all sports for that matter. Intercollegiate athletics is no longer amateur athletes earning a degree while representing their school. I’m not happy with it, and find myself losing interest, but that’s the state of things.
If BT goes in top 10 rounds he will almost certainly sign. Teams don't waste picks in the first 10 and not sign.
see fabian, jud...
I went to college to be able to get a decent paying career. I had jobs as a student while I was a student that
Most athletes go to college to prepare themselves for a successful career. In fact, that's true of most non-athletes. My interest is driven more by the quality of play than by their financial situations. I guess I'm not a purist.
Apparently he’s indicated he’s staying. I’ll believe it when I see it.
B.T. staying unless he gets money way over slot value.
Out of curiosity, why do you think that?
With Guscette transferring and Lastres still recovering, UF is going to need someone behind the plate.
