2017 Baseball Recruits
I know baseball recruiting is not as sexy as either basketball or football recruiting and there is usually less information out there but I thought a thread would be a useful place to put the things that we happen across on Twitter, etc.

For instance, yesterday William and Mary received a verbal commitment from David Hogarth (shortstop, 6'0" 170lbs, Havertown, PA).

A comment from Prep Baseball Report:
'3/15/16 6-foot, 160-pounder appears to have the ability to play all over the infield. Fields the ball out front, plays through well with his feet, and has solid arm strength. Made a nice play in rhythm to his left and then ranged a long way the same direction to field another ball. Right-handed hitter went 1-2 on the day and ran a 4.44 home-to-1B time.'

According to MaxPreps, he is hitting .286 with half of his hits being for extra-bases and only one strikeout in 25 plate appearances (he should have more than 25 PAs by this time of year so I assume these stats are incomplete).

He joins Jake Haney (pitcher, 6'3" 180lbs, Barboursville, VA) and William Moore (pitcher, 6'4" 188lbs, Charlottesville, VA) in our 2017 class. The 2016 class I feel is largely completed and can be seen at http://www.perfectgame.org/College/Colle...llege=1598

I wonder if our magical postseason run will help get us some good recruits.

We do need to take advantage of it.

2017 Baseball Recruits
This thread is a good idea. I'm reminded of a third baseman who was a real solid 3 year starter from Cypress here in Orange County CA. He graduated last year. A Latino dude. My point is that this area is loaded with D1 prospects and can be farmed by the Tribe.

This news is actually for the 2016 recruiting class but two incoming players were honored by the Washington Post. Lake Braddock RHP Wade Strain was All-Met First team and West Potomac RHP/OF Jamie Sara was honorable mention.

Over 58 innings Strain struck out 81 batters and gave up just 2 earned runs (0.36 ERA).

Any chance we could get this thread stickied like the football and basketball recruiting threads?

What is the scholarship situation with baseball? Does W&M provide any? how many? Is there a NCAA/CAA limit on the number of scholarships awarded?

@not_justin_p: I am proud to announce my commitment to play college baseball at William and Mary #GoTribe

His twitter handle and bio is a bit vague but I think it is Justin Pearson from Mountain View HS in Stafford, VA. Left-handed pitcher and outfielder. Listed at 6'0" and 145 lbs by prepbaseballreport virginia with this to say:

'6.3.16: Pearson is a lanky lefty that throws from a high three-quarters arm slot with a drop and drive delivery. Arm action is short and quick with some effort. Shoulders are uphill and closed, square landing with slight fall off. Fastball had angle and late run, sitting 81-84. Curveball was 72 with 1/7 break.'

Matt McDermott; a 5'8" 165 lb second baseman from Little Falls, NJ; gave his verbal commitment today to play for William and Mary.

Prep Baseball Report - New Jersey had a little article about him last year:
