No one in baseball ranks recruiting classes before they are enrolled and on campus. Once they are here, they're here for 3 years. So no, no one is going pro from this class for another 3 years at least.

nice haul for his first class, especially coming in ahead of the Gators. I suspect things will only get better from here. Now the key will be taking what we have and making it better. Great job CDS! Keep it up!

So which ranking do we believe? This one that has us at #20 or the one that came out a month ago and didn't have us in the top 100? With swings that big, I'm not sure any of these guys really know.

What publication had them unranked? BA is pretty strong.

Collegiate Baseball. See the thread in this forum called "Collegiate Baseball 2012 Recruting Rankings."

Perfect Game has the current class ranked 25th, but they don't count JUCO recruits, and I don't think they adjust for who actually shows up on campus (which makes Florida, for example, look a lot better).

I'd trust BA and PG a lot more than whoever Collegiate Baseball is.

This is correct. BA and PG are the only two people to listen to for the most part in college baseball. No one is even close to Aaron Fitt or Kendall Rogers when it comes to college baseball coverage.

I was amazed that we weren't mentioned in the Collegiate Baseball rankings. That being said, these class rankings don't mean a whole lot. Its a shot in the dark based on word of mouth potential.
