Interesting, we currently have the #10 ranked 2019 class by Perfect Game. https://www.perfectgame.org/Rankings/Recruiting/Rankings.aspx?g=2019

With player listing here: https://www.perfectgame.org/Rankings/Recruiting/CollegeCommits.aspx?ID=1628&g=2019

But that high of class ranking is largely because we have 18 commits. If you look at average ranking per player, we are 25th. Still very solid.

It's notable that we have 6 out of state which is a good sign (at least to me). Another good sign is only 1 of the 18 is top 100 and thus draft bait. It's not unusual to lose top 100 players.

How did we not have a post for 2019 alone? {rhetorical question} Anyway, here 's a summary:

Thanks to @CuseJacket for putting all the 2019 stuff in one post!

Here's the Perfect Game rating of our 2019 Class. I have a free subscription and the only number they now give out is the highest score. But still good to make my point about out of state players.

PG Highest Score, Name, Position, State
10.0, Jake Holland, C, FL
10.0 Andrew Jenkins 3B GA
10.0 Zachary Maxwell RHP GA
10.0 Stephen Reid OF NJ
9.5 Jackson Arnold RHP AL
9.5 Andrew Compton 3B NJ
9.5 Jake Gooch C GA
9.5 Jadyn Jackson SS GA
9.5 Caleb Reis C GA
9.0 Harrison Thiel SS FL
9.0 Brody Westbrooks RHP GA
8.8 Tres Gonzalez OF GA
8.5 William Coquillard RHP CA
8.0 Ben King RHP GA
N/A Evan Boyle LHP GA
N/A Jackson Finley RHP GA
N/A John Giesler SS GA
N/A Dalton Smith LHP GA

Thanks for all the info. I’m not any kind of expert, but I don’t think the rating of 18 recruits matters, or even the ratings of 10 players. I think it is the ratings of the 5 best players that show up that matters.

Gotta agree with that. Those are the guys that are likely gonna see the field.

Imagine if CPJ had too 25 classes every year and played 0.500 ball. But I digress. Nothing would make me happpier than to see 40-50 wins and a trip to the World Series. We need to get some momentum back in our sports programs.
