Fall workouts are finally here, and while D1Baseball will have in-depth reports on several teams the next couple of months, it’s important to track the latest scoop as scrimmages and practices continue.

We also have an in-depth update on Florida, which once again possesses an impressive stable of power arms. There are also a cornucopia of nuggets on TCU, which already has some premium arms and newcomers rising to the occasion, while Eric Walker and some younger arms are already making an impact this fall for LSU.
