2017 Baseball Roster & Schedule
Does anyone know when these are typically released? Any roster losses or additions compared to last year (other than grads or signed draftees)?

2 transfers, both pitchers, 1 from Kentucky & 1 from LSU.

The schedule should be released by end of October and the roster isn't usually updated until January 1st, sometimes sooner.

Looks like there is at least one more additional transfer/addition

Nick Kanavas - looks like his first year was at Arizona and then the next two years at Madison College. He was listed as an INF out of HS but looks like he has played in the OF in college.

With 3 transfers plus the freshman class, where's the roster room going to come from? Where there enough players that graduated or got drafted to make enough room on the roster?

There will be subtractions from last years roster other than graduation and draft also, there usually are for various reasons. Each programs goes through it. I know of at least one who transfer from the baseball program. The kid from Lexington, Ohio transferred to Ashland, he was a freshman last year.

But roster room is a good question. I believe the max for a roster is 35 or 36 or somewhere in that neighborhood.

I will say under Duncan it seems like there have been more transferring coming in than years past.

We've seemingly also gotten away from our recruiting strengths in NE Ohio and Western PA - the two regions our program's 2007-2012 run was really built on. Perhaps a no-longer-dormant Pittsburgh program (and ACC schedule) is a factor in that.

Our recruiting is as good or better than ever. We continue to pull in top talent from the state which includes NE Ohio. We've tapped in the talent rich area of southern Ohio and picked up good players from the Northern Illinois, Wisconsin area. We may have some competition Pitt now yes but I look at is as Kent State is widening their talent pull which is a nod to the continued tradition and success its had. Constantly the best baseball program in Ohio for sure.

On what basis are you making these claims? Not trying to argue or start anything, just curious.
