Great to see. I hope we have some great pitchers in this class who can contribute immediately. If not, we are in trouble next season.

Is that really your take away from this? We had a disastrous season, fired our underperforming coach, hired a new coach who some on CT don't want because he wasn't a 'splashy big-name hire', and we still end up with a Top 5 class. The reality with those rankings is that it really doesn't matter if you're 3, 4, 5, or 6; Kingston held the core of the class together and added a few pieces. We should be jumping up and down to be getting what we're getting, and I'm looking forward to seeing what he does this year.

Two of the three drafted players were pitchers. Should be a strong pitching class.

He had his weaknesses (I won't dredge up the bunt debate, it is the off-season) but Holbrook could recruit.

Prior to the coaching change this class was projected #2. To still be top 5 speaks to not only our reputation as a program but also to the strength of our new coaching staff. We got the guys onto campus. Let's see what they can do for us because they will be expected to produce immediately beginning Friday and into the Spring.

4 of the top 5 - 6 of the top 10 - 9 of the top 25 classes in the SEC

That's why no conference has a chance compared to the SEC in Baseball. The ACC is always pretty good too, but they're counting as just 5 of the top 25. Honestly, I'm a little shocked by that.

Definitely looking forward to the fall scrimmages and the 2018 season!
Agree that Coach Kingston has done a great job to still maintain a top
5 recruiting class. From what we've read, he's been a tireless worker!

I had no problem with Chad's recruiting. He brought in some very good recruits but I had a serious problem with many of them not getting good coaching under Chad. I believe Kingston will do a much better job of coaching the players and also being a much better game coach.

So far A+ for Kingston. We may actually have a shot at another title down the road. Lord knows we need one. Even if we finish with the No. 5 class that works for me. Having just enough top shelf talent with players who can be coached up is a good formula. Makes me happy seeing Clemson near the bottom of the list.

The vast majority of the class were recruited by Holbrook's staff, but Kingston and his staff did a great follow-up job to keep most of the commitments holding true to USC.....

LOL - 3rd nationally and also 3rd in the SEC. If they did divisions for baseball, we would be 3rd in the SEC East.

And 7 of the Top Ten from the SEC.
