nothing bad about it, IMO. we have a top 20 class according to PG, and outside of robert evans (who is going to JUCO) we got all of them on campus, as of now.

yea that sucks. someone is giving these kids bad advice. i understand if you've been in college a few years, but to go undrafted after HS and to sign a FA deal? not smart

D.BROWN3 UDFA DEAL WITH THE BLUE JAYS

I don't know. He's being payed to play baseball. If his agent has any smarts he will get him a deal where his team will pay for college if the pros don't work out.
I know a couple of guys who did that. They were out of baseball in 4-5 years but got free educations.

I agree with that. I one guy I coached had money to State. Astros drafted in the 8th round. He signed with a provision that they pay his education if he didn't make it within 5 years. Two arm injuries later, he got his free education. Example #2. 5 tool outfielder. Would have been a high draft pick. Asked for too much money. Drafted in late rounds anyway an was offered above slot to sign. Turn it down. Played one year in college. Injuries and grade issues. He had a learning disability. Never played a second of pro ball. The decision is different for everyone. Ability ,organization, contract, academics and family concerns all play a part in an individual decision.

i mean i get what you're saying, and of course personal life and other factors changes person to person. but, IMO, he was likely a 2 year starter at a good ACC program (of course if he lived up to the hype), he could have been a top 5-7 round pick in a couple years with his tools.

tough loss, on paper.

A high school guy signing for $125k is very unusual too. Must be extenuating circumstances. Definitely a blow for State

Wasnt Zayas a pretty key part of this class? Are we going the Keatts route and de-emphasizing high schoolers now or was this unexpected?

Pretty sure it was expected by the staff since they were all over MIF transfers. Zayas is so smooth defensively but his hit tool is lacking. Sure, it's a loss but a guy like Matt Heavner hits better but doesn't have the same smooth actions in the field as Zayas. There's a kid from WV, Michael McKinney, that's big at 6'3 (reminds me of Green and Marcy), and has that same high leg kick like Neto from Campbell. He's from WV so who knows how he'll look against D1 talent coming from Coal City, WV.

Yeah definitely don't think we'll de-emphasize HS recruiting. For next year we've got 2 more top 50 kids coming in according to PG.

Stinks to lose Zayas and Evans from the class but if you get Gupton and Serrano to campus it's still a win. You have to think half of your top HS guys won't make it due to being drafted if you are fishing in the right pools. With the infield transfers we have coming back plus the hopeful improvement and settling in of Green we will be fine. If not, go find another kid like Hood in the portal. the year after.

Josh Hood signed with the Mariners for $250,000. Good for him, totally exceeded what I thought he would get. Awesome!

That's great for Josh! Wish we could've had him for a few seasons, was a good player and seemed like a solid dude.
Just a guy on the sunshine squad.

Fwiw, Zayas only got $47.5k so seems like there were some other factors in play
