Just because UConn is looking at him, and he is looking at other schools, does not mean that he has offers at any of them (including UConn).
Stevens tallied three hits (infield single, 2-run HR, double) and 3 RBIs....but who's countingStevens hit another dinger today to go with 4 RBIs
LOL...Story on UConn recruit Reggie Crawford, a LHP due to be in Storrs next season. Among other things, it says that 6 major league scouts were checking him out at a recent game:
North Schuylkill Pitcher Reggie Crawford Creating Buzz In Schuylkill County
As the high school infield is still under water (the school is on the side of a hill, so its all tiers with the high school itself on top and the baseball diamond/soccer field at the bottom and as water runs downhill...), I caught Josh Cohen pitch for a bit today. The high school was using the 90' Rec Field, which happens to be across the street from the 60' field my 9U travel team had a game today.Local blurb on Big North Conference's pitcher of the month - Josh Cohen of Indian Hills (the fact that he's even playing baseball today, not to mention going to a a D1 baseball program is an accomplishment in and of itself).
"Big North Conference pitcher: Josh Cohen, Indian Hills, Sr.
Cohen started his season off with a bang and struck out 15 batters on his way to a complete-game 4-0 win over Marist on April 6. The UConn recruit allowed just two hits in the victory and walked one. Cohen is a cancer survivor and through the Make-a-Wish Foundation pitched in front of scouts at the New York Mets' training facility in Florida last year."

Well that apparently answers that outstanding question...UConn baseball has gotten a commitment from California JUCO Zach Bushling, a 5'9'' lefty hitting middle infielder from Sierra College, the school which also sent Mike Woodworth to Storrs. I checked some game box scores, and found that Bushling played 2B this season.
Saw him play this year. Very fluid defender, made some nice throws on the run (charging soft grounders) and he is fast. Needs to get stronger at the plate, doesn't drive the ball as you would think a kid his size would.
Sounds like a dude this staff can develop into a monster after some time in the weight room.Saw him play this year.
