Another one for 2020
Seems like UConn has really gotten into the heat of the college baseball recruiting season recently.Can't seem to find much on him (although there's a Brendan O'Connell from Lyman Hall that is playing at Bentley next year and a different Brendan O'Donnell from the class of 2019 in PA that also per PG has a UConn offer!). Some showcase places on twitter say he's up to 86 from the mound and has great bat speed. Two way potential as a LHP/OF/1B is very cool.
Congratulations and all the best to your son going forward.Bittersweet week for me, as my 2019 RHP recently committed to a D1 school, but sadly not UCONN. As an Alum, and a bit hopeful, I enjoyed following the baseball program the past year. I do feel he has the same, if not better, talent than some of the signed 2018/2019 players. Unfortunately, he's a late bloomer physically and, though there was some dialogue/evaluation, it was a bit too late for both parties.
I feel I'll be all-in on his new school once he gets started and gradually fade away from the Huskies. We'll see, though, I'm sure I'll continue to snoop in on the Olympic Sports threads.
Wow!! Over the past year or so, I would occasionally look up news on Mike Yarin, and there was never any mention of a football destination, including on Mike Yarin's twitter account. Still this is nice unexpected recruiting surprise, to have Yarin back in the UConn baseball recruiting fold.
Given his bat and the need for OF depth, this is a welcome addition!!! Perhaps he saw an opportunity to play immediately in the OF (he already loved Storrs) and couldn’t pass it up.Wow!!

Here's a little scouting tidbit on Mike Yarin, courtesy of Prep Baseball Report:
>>Physical hitter who can really swing the bat. The bat is a lineup changer. Plays a variety of positions, showing versatility. High level prospect.<<
Prep Baseball Report - Player: Michael Yarin
Perfect Game has him as hitting 92mph. Anyone who can do that while still in high school, let alone with the left arm, is a high-level prospect. Another great pickup. Typical for Penders.Class of 2019 - Reggie Crawford is a 6-4 205lb LHP from North Schuylkill High School in Frackville PA. He is also an All-State swimmer.
Another UConn baseball recruit from Pennsylvania. These days it seems like the coaching staff gets a couple of recruits from Pennsylvania just about every year.Class of 2019 - Reggie Crawford is a 6-4 205lb LHP from North Schuylkill High School in Frackville PA. He is also an All-State swimmer.
