    44 is pretty damn solid, but I suspect it might be underselling this class significantly. There are a lot of very good players coming in.

    Yes, Yarin Decommitted and indicated he wanted to pursue football in college (whether division 1, 2 or 3).

    Of course, there is always a chance that Pat Winkel and Michael Burrows will get drafted and go pro.

    Winkle will be a Husky unless he’s given a significant signing bonus. Education is highly valued in his case.

    Pretty sure all the kids on the list value education. I think it's part of the character check before being asked to play UCONN Baseball. Nobody knows for sure, but my guess is we keep all of them and the schools ranked above lose quite a few...thinning the heard.....and leaving us that much stronger.

    My apologies.. did not mean to offend. Just saying with top ranked pitchers and catchers especially it goes without saying these days....

    "Insert player name"
    will be a "insert college name" unless he’s given a significant signing bonus.

    So....Huskies @ #44 will be in a good place after the draft. Vanderbilt (the #1)has 10 of the top 50 players committed. I KNOW they won't be keeping all of there players. "That".was my point. Did not mean to Passover your point in the process. My bad.
