High School; right-hander Jeremy Lucroy of Umatilla (Fla.) High School; left-hander Justin Randa of Barton (Kan.) Community College; left-hander Chase Richard of Central Private (La.) High School; right-hander Steven Schroeder of Bellaire (Texas) High School; and left-hander Greg Wilborn of Eldorado (N.M.) High School.

High School; infielder/outfielder William Long of Pendleton (Fla.) High School; outfielder/infielder Ty Rasmussen of Enumclaw (Wash.) High School; infielder Tim Santiago of Bossier Parish (La.) Community College and a native of Lafayette; and outfielder/infielder Devery Van de Keere of Phoenix Junior College.

“This incoming class provides us with the combination of experience and talent,
I like the way our program is headed now. Coach Robe and Schef are doing a great job getting some great talent here every year. Cajuns will make the NCAA's this year. Someone I talked to in the program has already made comparisons to the 2000 CWS team.
I saw they signed some good quality players. I hope they can have a great year and make it back to the CWS.
