2021 commit, RHP, 94 mph.

Wow, could very well be in the 96 - 97 range by the time he show up at Reckling in 2 years.

In August he was 86-88....that’s a huge jump to 96-97.

It says 94 on his Perfect Game profile: https://www.perfectgame.org/Players/Play...?ID=483051

Whether that’s accurate or not, no idea... But they didn’t make up the number.

That's the source I was looking at. Maybe that's his top speed, not what he can throw consistently. Either way, he's a solid prospect who's fastball is still developing.

Agreed. Not disparaging him at all. That certainly wasn't my intention. He's definitely an intriguing prospect. Sometimes PG can juice the velo stats with balls that may or may not be exactly 5 ounces. I think the 86-88 is a more accurate picture and that's plenty fast for a kid who's developing.

Could one of you more informed folks give an "objective " rating of Bragga's recruits vs what he inherited?
Realize ultimately there is a bias in the ratings themselves

Looks like we just landed another commit, as Cory Barton posted his animated dancing owl on twitter.

Edit-- and here's the confirmation tweet...

Freshman left handed hitter (looking at his tweets, he may pitch some too?). I don't recall many freshman recruits in the past for Rice, but I guess we're just catching up with how other programs are doing it these days.

Curious how you can project/recruit a player who has never played a HS game. Seems early for me and I know other schools do this. The summer select circuit is likely where they get their looks but even that is suspect at this age. It will be interesting to follow how many of these "early" recruits actually end up on the roster.

Cory Barton has certainly brought us into the modern-era of recruiting in terms of how early we are recruiting.
