Konnor Griffin, the nation's top baseball recruit for 2024, announced his commitment to LSU on Thursday night.

Griffin, a native of Florence, Miss., (Jackson Preparatory), picked the Tigers over offers from Mississippi State, Ole Miss, and Vanderbilt. Per SI.com:
quote:

A do-it-all player on the diamond, Griffin has played shortstop, outfielder, third base and is a right-handed pitcher with a fastball that has reached 93 mph.

Griffin, who is rated the No. 1 high school prospect in the 2024 MLB Draft, comes out of Jackson Prep in Mississippi. It’ll be a challenge to get the youngster on campus given his draft status, but for the Tigers to gain a commitment from such a coveted prospect proves this program is continuing to trend in the right direction.

But Griffin’s path to becoming the No. 1 player in the 2024 class is different. Originally a 2025 prospect, the gifted athlete decided to reclassify and enter the 2024 cycle, making his ranking that much more impressive given his age.

Congrats on your commitment to LSU. I also live in the Jackson area and attended LSU. Believe me, if you end up attending LSU, you will never regret the decision for the rest of your life. Geaux Tigers!

Will NIL pay more than a MLB farm team - that is the question?

NIL deal for college baseball player couldn’t possibly come close to what 1st overall picks sign for

My kid has played against him. He is really good at baseball. Pretty phenomenal at basketball too. He'll never make it to a campus.

Well, we can hope he comes our way for 3 years, can't we? Crews wasn't supposed to show up, but he did!

I wonder how NIL money will help increase chances of getting players to lean towards actually making it on campus. Probably not a player like this but maybe the line moves in that direction.

It’s always hard to get amped up about getting baseball recruits this highly rated bc it’s really just ceremonial, and highly unlikely they will actually make it to campus

Even if he ends up going pro, it's still good visibility and momentum for the rest of the recruiting class. Great news regardless!
