Who can blame the kids for leaving when they are drafted in the first five rounds. When drafted that high they receive the full attention of the organization, not to mention most players that make the bigs play in the minors for 3-5 years. It's the difference in making the league at 21 or 25. Money talks.
I am asking why Mainieri has not gotten 1 and several other programs still seem to hold onto 1 or 2 at a time at times.
Usually 2-3 players a year get drafted in 1st rd and don't go.
Regardless you have to take everything with a grain of salt. After the Zach Lee and ZVR debacles, I've learned not to believe anything recruits say until they have signed on the dotted line or the draft signing deadline has passed.
