I would think Adrian Siravo wants to keep his options to go pro open. If he came to UConn, he would have to wait until after his Junior year to go pro. JUCO players can pretty much go pro after each JUCO season.I wonder if he was anticipating getting drafted and going pro (of course, that went off the rails w/ 5 rounds instead of 40) and is now going JuCo to get another shot as quickly as possible.
Or, it could be academic. Or literally anything. Whatever it is, I'm a little sad as he was a highly-regarded recruit, but wish him nothing but the best. I'm sure Penders will have a good gameplan regardless.
Yep - with that size and raw power, he reminds me of those of those Oklahoma State dudes we saw a couple years ago. Hopefully he doesn't strike out as muchThis guy is very similar to CCSU’s post draft signee TT Bowens. I love this kids size and sheer power. The 96mph exit velocity is massive considering he is only going to be a junior in the fall.
His commitment is still there (2/8/19)....I is indeed very concerning. I think he may have taken down the post saying that he committed to the program. Still has retweeted the stuff saying that he is a UConn commit but it is definitely up in the air. Don’t want to lose him
Happens all the time to big time programs. Big name programs like USC have been decimated because they have lost too many commits to the MLB draft with no real fallbacks. That's why it is important to get the Winkel's and Crawford's of the world and mix them in with blue collar talent.Unfortunately, Ziegler is not coming. He is on Both the Nottheast Area Code and East Coast Pro rosters this year which is a clear indication he is not honoring his commitment to UConn.
I would think there is still a chance Calvin Ziegler might arrive in Storrs, as you never know how the MLB draft will shake out. As for Adrian Siravo, with him going the JUCO route, I can't see that happening at this point.Happens all the time to big time programs.

Really hoping at least one of Siravo or Ziegler come - maybe both. Nothing in MLB can replicate the excitement of a College World Series appearance.
