2017 D1Baseball Top 25 Recruiting ClassesRecruiting
Recruiting classes finally are on campus, and while some programs lost big to the draft this past summer, others have an influx of young players and junior college transfers ready to make a huge impact in a few months. With that, it’s time to unveil D1Baseball.com’s Top 25 Recruiting Classes, led by Vanderbilt.
The Commodores brought in 17 players this fall, all being freshmen. While advanced hitter Philip Clarke is expected to be an immediate impact player for Tim Corbin’s club, 6-foot-4 lefthanded pitcher Jake Eder also could make a huge and immediate impact with crisp stuff and a fastball sitting 91-95 mph.
Vandy is joined in the top five by some familiar foes. Four of the top five teams hail from the SEC, with the ACC’s Florida State coming in at No. 5. Florida, the defending national champion, had a great summer with Brady McConnell and Tommy Mace, among others, deciding to go to college, while Arkansas has a blooming potential star in hard-hitting freshman Heston Kjerstad.
