Baseball De-Commitment
Josh Rivera, 2019 commit, just de-committed. The kid is really good.

I'm telling you, losing Van Hook is not a good thing. Since he took over the recruiting from Hallmark, we've secured some good players. Rivera was one of 2 commits from the 2019 class. This leaves Jackson Kiddy from Sweeny as the lone remaining 2019 commit.

Christian Cienfuegos, a 5-9 SS/RHP from Baytown (Memorial) has committed to Rice. He's class of 2019. His tweet announcing his commitment has a picture of him with Coach Pope.

Coach Pope seems to be stepping up the effort to bring in recruits. Picking up where VH left off is a good thing.

True, but it doesn't explain how he lost our star recruit pitcher in next year's incoming class; a guy he coached at Cy Ranch.

Placing the blame on Pope is extremely unfair in my opinion. When you spend 2 months spinning your wheels in the hiring process, the other schools like Texas will pressure kids with uncertainty. And we STILL haven't hired to replace VH yet. This is on administration. Pope, in just his first year of collegiate coaching has been thrust into a new role and he's doing everything he can to make up ground.

I am not at all sure that all recruits want to continue playing for their HS coach.
