Default 2013 SS Marcus Mooney commits to USC

http://southcarolina.247sports.com/A...3-class-137076

Maybe this is why Pankake was moved?
If he is anything like his brother, we should be in for a treat at SS.
This line intrigues me:
"To paint a picture of his game, Marcus Mooney said that (brother) Michael was a better fielder but he is better at the plate. He said that Peter was a better hitter but he is better defensively."

Should be an intersting battle between him and DC...looking like either way we are putting a defensive specialist at SS next year.

This is great news. He will also not be eligible to go pro for 2 years once he's here.

Default Re: 2013 SS Marcus Mooney commits to USC

Next year could be a brand new infield with Caldwell at 3rd, Mooney at SS, Schrock at 2B and Martin at 1B.

I'll go ahead and throw it out there for the double play...Marcus to Max for the M&M double play turn!

Had to stop and think about that one. Solid pickup for the next couple years. Peter was just an all-around good player, so I'm sure this kid will contribute quickly.

Default Re: 2013 SS Marcus Mooney commits to USC

Going to be a very busy middle infield the next few seasons.

http://www.gogamecocks.com/2013/07/0...n-to-join.html

2014 commit is Everett Enyon.
He joins 2014 INF commits Jared Williams and Seth Lancaster.
Add them to Mooney, Arendas, Schrock, and Jordan Gore.
One thing is for sure...Holbrook will have plenty to choose from the next few seasons.

Default Re: 2013 SS Marcus Mooney commits to USC

The more competition the better. Some are saying Pankake will play 3B but I don't see how that significantly helps your infield when you slide an error prone guy a few steps to the left to make longer throws. Granted the SS gets more balls hit to him and Mooney is a pure SS so I see the argument there. Caldwell's defense is apparently lacking so maybe that sets him up for the DH spot.

Surprisingly a lot of questions to be answered over just a couple open spots next year.

Don't forget we have a lot of guys competing for 3B.
I think Weber Pike is still in the program...Connor Bright could get moved to third (recruited as an infielder)...as was Saiko, and don't sleep on Matt Williams.

Default Re: 2013 SS Marcus Mooney commits to USC

These additions put in place multiple options to cure the infield defense.

What's being done about the outfield - both on defense and offense? The corner positions are weak defensively & right and center are weak offensively. BTW, 'weak' is not really the right word - 'not championship caliber' is the concept I'm trying to convey.

We are brining in Zack Madden, Brock Maxwell, Jae Roberts and Gene Cone.
Maxwell has a good bat, as does Roberts (though Roberts isn't ready defensively).

Madden is a contact hitter.

Also hit OF for 2014 with O'Kevious Conway, KJ Bryant and Clark Scolamiero.
Don't know anything about Cownay, but Bryant has a very live bat and solid arm. Scolamiero also has a good bat.

Probably won't fix everything in one class, but you get the feeling Holbrook is building a team that can make a run for a title soon. We know one thing...it isn't far off with the current guys on the roster.

The Williams kid is a good kid and hardworker who adds a left handed bat. Known him since he was little. What all have you heard about him?

From what I have seen...he is a good hitter, not great.
Has a good arm, and is good in the field.
Where his strength is, in my opinion, is above the neck.
Is a coaches son, and knows the game.

Also have Paulson and Ray Murphy who RS last year.
Paulson is hitting about .283 in summer ball, and Murphy has been compared to Adam Matthews.

Going to be a very busy tryout and a lot of competition at virtually every spot.
From corner outfield, SS, 3B, backup C, No. 3 starter, closer, setup, bullpen.
