Wasn't he one of those later addition walk ons?
Yes, PM and LM both told him to come to campus early and work with the teams. Laird worked out with the football team and then once PM saw how he did in the high school all star game (MVP) and the Marrucci tournament (Tourney MVP), he decided that he better get him on scholarship. He did and the rest is history.
PM is lucky he had some kids go to the draft.
Laird went to the last PM baseball camp of the year last year and they told him to go the RR (Juco) route. Well they called him the next week and said, nah you better come to BTR.....
