    Baseball Recruiting

    Anyone have any scoop on baseball recruiting? Would like to know what geographical area Goff is going to start focusing on in order to develop a pipeline.

    Apparently Hinds Community College! I like it, #1 JC college baseball program last few years. Think we signed 5 off this team, many from LA schools.

    Well Goff is a Delta State product so I imagine he has deep connections in the Magnolia State. Any link showing bios of signees?

    I tried to find it at latechsports but couldn't. There was a release at one time, nice looking class with several N LA kids in it and 3 from Hinds played HS in LA.

    I think I found the list. Be interested to see if he goes back to Hinds for this upcoming class also or if he loads up on more high school kids.

    I think we signed 6, we signed another one of their pitchers late... I listened to the interview of the Washam brothers...they are classy. Should be a great fit

    He said when he was hired that he would have to build the team around some jucos and that he would use scholarships to build a pitching staff. Smart move since we have TOPS to supplement the rest.

    Not using jucos to build a team is really silly since the P5s are using jucos as a "farm system". We will still continue to pick up freshmen who can play immediately. IMO, it doesn't make sense to pick up a freshman who can't be an impact player only to red shirt them or for them to just take up a roster spot. The more pitchers the better.

    I figured he would farm the Metroplex and try to develop a pipeline there, but the Juco approach makes sense, especially in Mississippi where there are so many. Straight shot down I-20 and he presumably has connections there.

    Outstanding article - timing couldn't be better! Like the fact that some of these kids have North LA ties also.

    He was brought in to win. He has had a year to evaluate the players on the team. Many of them were probably not on scholarship.

    I know of at least one scholarship player who will not be coming back. I'm sure there are more.
