re: LSU Baseball 2021 (and beyond) Recruiting Thread
Until Mikey Romero committed, we hadn't gotten a commitment for any forward class since like October.

By the looks of it, we're going to be adding a lot to the 2022 class, likely because of what the above poster referenced, everyone is a draft risk right now.

And when you look at a lot of the transfers coming in, Shaffer and McManus are definitely one year guys. Berry and Reyzelman are likely one year guys.

I think he's trying to make hay with the current roster for next year since there is a lot to work with, but then turn it over quick to something he wants.

Snelling looks like a legitimate two way player. At the tournament in Lake Charles a couple weeks ago he hit several HRs and struck out the first 9 batters he faced in his start, which may have also been a no hitter.

Good thing is, LSU is going to be super attractive to transfers without having to sit out. The loss of draft risks become a little less impactful

No. Shaffer and McManus are coming in to play their final seasons of eligibility. They are definitely one year guys.

Berry and Reyzelman both have more eligibility remaining but are likely to only be here one season.

PG only had him listed as an LHP. I'll change it in the list post.

Yeah, that's my bad, I was just thinking draft related

He also competed in the same HR derby as Jones at the MLB All American game and hit 14 in the first round.

GA, I meant to ask you this before, but what is your opinion on Fitzgerald?

One hell of a coach. To get him away from DBU as just an assistant is an incredible haul. One of the most personable coaches I've ever met, and very even keel, something that comes from working under Heefner.

You get a coach from there with the standing they have, it's always a good thing. It'll be interesting to see how soon the head coach offers come in

Feels like there is 7-10 high draft pick caliber players. Watch the frick out if some of these guys make it.
Johnson has made some pretty strong, Mainieri like comments concerning the draft. It will be interesting to see if all of the prior commitments stick or if he thinks some of their interest isn’t real.

Much rather have 10 draft risks and land 3-4 than 4 and land 1…

PG notes on Snelling from last week:

quote:

Robby Snelling (2022 LHP, Reno, NV): Snelling showed some power stuff, working up to 93 mph with his fastball from a very fast arm, showing good feel for spinning a two-plane curveball and missing a lot of bats.

quote:

Robby Snelling (2022 LHP, Reno, NV) is a very physical hitter with big power to the pull side. He showed plus potential power with a ton of jump off the bat as the power upside is substantial long term.

Kudrna signed, $3MM. Took him off the list.

This portal thing could not have been timed any better. 2021 class already in place, yet Johnson has been able to come in and already make an impact. I already can't wait to see what he does in future years.

Jacob Berry and Jared Jones listed as early top 20 picks for the 2022 draft on MLB.com.

Getting Priester in this current class takes a lot of pressure off of pulling the catchers in the next class. All three in the next class are draft risks to varying extents. It's hard not to feel most confident about getting Frey to campus thought since he's the local kid.

When is the deadline for this crop of draftees to sign with the team that drafted them? I have September 1st in mind but not sure if that’s correct.

August 1st.

I plan to start a new thread after that, but I may have fricking jury duty on the 2nd

Quicker than I expected. I guess it was the later draft date that threw me off.
