Sorry, I have not read all the comments within this thread, but do we expect all the recruits to enroll?
I think we have 19 recruits coming in and only 10 roster spots. I'm sure we will have some guys who were on the team this year quit, but some of the recruits will be cut in Fall ball or find another home before then.Sorry, I have not read all the comments within this thread, but do we expect all the recruits to enroll?
Do we know if all the 2019 recruits are scholarship players and how many are preferred walk ons? That will definitely affect how many actually make it through fall. I am also hearing that we may lose some of the 2018 Freshman class due to playing time, difference of opinions etc. so that could drop the numbers a little. Additionally, there are always 2-3 kids that show up for Fall Ball and get a shot, I believe there was one on the roster this past year, not sure who though.
The question I want answered is how is Carter Hall holding down a roster spot and not playing. I know he is fast but where did we use him? Potentially taking a spot from another productive player. Can he possibly be on the team next year? Just doesn't make sense. I know he didn't travel but still a roster spot is a roster spot. Will he be an official Senior next year? Scratching my head...
I believe the roster is 35.Good questions. I think we'll get to the 45 (?) roster number by current non-playing players leaving and some of the recruits not making it.
Carter Hall is probably not going to be on the roster, not even playing summer ball. If he is ...... I'll comment then.
Looking at this list of signed and verbal commits, I'd think the signed commits take precedence. But verbal commits like Stephen Reid and Caleb Reis will make it. Where is @CuseJacket to explain "processing"? https://beesball.com/recruiting.html
The reason I titled the post with "The future is NOW" is because I believe we had Omaha level talent this year and may not next year. Specifically in pitching unless our Fr pitchers are Vandy quality. Maybe they will be, maybe they won't. We'll find out next year.
Here's the summary. As of Wednesday morning, only Maxwell and Waddell are in a drafted but unsigned status. https://beesball.com/draft2019.html
I doubt either will sign unless there is a big bonus which is out of line with their draft position. Waddell has two more draft opportunities, so he can be like English was last year and really increase his value. (Except English wasn't drafted but there was talk of him getting picked up after the draft with a bonus.) Note English has signed doesn't have a signing bonus disclosed yet.
Maxwell was drafted lower than most Fr committed to a top tier program elect to sign.
I had to research this because I was concerned the Yankees might just throw lots of money at Maxwell even though he was a late pick. After the first 10 rounds, nobody can get higher than a $125,000 signing bonus without penalty. If they go over 125,000, that takes away from their pool money that is allotted to that team, and the Yankees only had about the 20th most pool money anyway.
So that's to say, it seems unlikely they would make any significant offer higher than 125,000 to him and that seems like a pretty low number for him to sign for, given that he was thought to be possibly a top 5 round talent.
I know he went out to their spring training facility last week. So if he hasn’t officially signed yet, he will.The AZ Snakepit draft tracker updates with commentary every day and still shows Tristin as unsigned. Anyone know for sure?
