Gotcha. And I agree, I really hope the guys who left reach the bigs and live their dreams.

I guess I just wasn't expecting to lose anyone out of the recruiting class, other than possibly Stanwich (which I thought was a less than 50% chance). Marcum surprised me, but hopefully, he still comes to school.

Speaking of which, even though the '23 and '24 classes are ranked higher, Vitello may have found a nice sweet spot with the 22 class...a lot of talented players JUST below the caliber that gets drafted and signs. I think Sloop, Stanwich, Orr, Chapman, Marcum (if he comes to Knoxville), and Dreiling are all in that category. All of them have a legit chance to be freshman contributors, as does the Catcher Payton Ebbing. This class might end up being the best of the bunch if you only count the ones who make it to campus.
That's a really good point. What good did it do Vandy to have the #1 ranked class only to see it disappear like a wisp of smoke? Smart to find the ones who actually will come to school, like Moore.

Has Andrew Kribbs had trouble adjusting to the college game? He was fantastic in high school here in Knoxville and I don't think I've heard a word about the guy since he got on campus. Last I looked he was still on the roster?

Don't know whether we should worry, but I get a little queasy seeing him working out in MLB parks already. Might get drafted before he ever gets to campus?
I think moving forward with the way TV is recruiting for 2024 and 2025 and beyond, we’ll have to get used to this feeling. We’ll be pulling a lot of elite prospects that will have major draft potential.

And right on cue, arguably the top guy in the 26 class Colt Springall announced his commitment to the Vols today.
