Default Re: Baseball Recruiting Thread

Interesting article discussing which schools have the most top 500 players coming to school post 2014 MLB draft & signing deadline. Gamecocks made out quite well here which bodes well for the future.

http://www.baseballamerica.com/colle...0-commitments/

If ya don't feel like reading the whole article, below is what really pertains to USC.

A quick glance at the leaderboard of teams that landed the most BA 500 recruits reveals many of the teams that will factor prominently into the BA recruiting class rankings this fall. LSU and UCLA lead the way with eight (counting Aiken and Nix), followed by South Carolina (seven); Stanford and Virginia (five); Florida and Oregon (four); Arizona, Arkansas, Central Florida, Florida International, Miami, Texas and Vanderbilt (three).

South Carolina’s outstanding class features three players who rank between 200-300: Clark Scolamiero (No. 211), Alex Destino (246) and Hunter Taylor (248). Power righthander Brandon Murray (385) had a disappointing spring but has huge upside, giving him a chance to be a major difference maker.

Not overly impressed with Hill. He's a good kid and a good player but not exactly sure if he is South Carolina caliber. However, he def could've went to an SMC then transferred in and would've been a lot better/ more comfortable about his commitment.

As of 09/02/14, after talking to people who know the game and are "close" to him having played against him and coached against him, he is a take as a projectable kinda guy. He is 6'4 about 180 throwing in the mid-upper 80's. It's possible in a year or two he is the same height maybe a little bit taller throwing high 80's and touching low 90's. He is a projectable guy who I
wouldn't expect to contribute right away but contribute a year or two after he's on campus.

And stupid question -- why not a subforum in The Proving Grounds like the basketball recruiting subforum instead of a thread over here?

Just wonderin'. Seems it would make sense.

I asked this same question in the Site News & Suggestions forum a few months ago. Here's the thread:

http://www.cockytalk.com/showthread.php?t=205596

Essentially, it's because there is no real database anywhere, and information is too few and far between. Mostly, we get updates when a player commits, and that's it.
