College Baseball publication Baseball America released their recruiting rankings this week and pegged LSU at No. 2.

This is the third Top 5 finish in the past four years for the Tigers. Per LSUSports.net:
quote:

The Tigers have finished No. 1 in a recruiting ranking in 2007, 2010, 2014 and 2018; No. 2 in 2020; No. 3 in 2009; No. 4 in 2012; No. 5 in 2017; No. 6 in 2019; No. 7 in 2011, 2015 and 2016; and No. 10 in 2013.

The 2020 ranking marks the third Top 5 class for LSU assistant coach Nolan Cain, who has served as recruiting coordinator since 2017. Cain's classes have been ranked No. 5 in 2017, No. 1 in 2018, No. 6 in 2019 and No. 2 in 2020.

The 17-man 2020 recruiting class is composed of 10 pitchers, six position players and one two-way player.

"We're trying to develop a championship ball club, and I think we have the makings of a really great team," said LSU head coach Paul Mainieri, who will enter the 2021 season this spring as the NCAA Baseball Active Coaches Wins Leader with 1,467 career victories. "We've added to an already elite pitching staff with some really electric arms in this recruiting class. I just think our staff has the chance to be one of the best pitching staffs we've ever had.

Long as Mainieri is there....means nothing. He needs to go.

Again it’s a shite or get off the pot situation. Paul it’s time to perform with all this talent . If not there are tons of coaches that would go nuts at an opportunity like LSU

I saw recently that Joey Gallow, now one of the best hitters in MLB, signed a letter of intent to play at LSU. But he was a first round choice and took the $2.25 million bonus instead. Selfish bastard. We could have used that bat.

There’s a lot of others. That’s a part of baseball recruiting every year

There does not appear to be a direct correlation between recruiting rankings and national rankings

Too bad we don't have a coaching staff to take advantage of it.
