BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - For the third time in four years, LSU has earned a top five recruiting ranking from Baseball America.
The Tigers land at No. 2 on the list, which was released on Wednesday, September 2.
The 2020 recruiting class is made up of 10 pitchers, six position players, and one two-way player.
“We’re trying to develop a championship ball club and I think we have the makings of a really great team,” said LSU head coach Paul Mainieri. “We’ve added to an already elite pitching staff with some really electric arms in this recruiting class. I just think our staff has the chance to be one of the best pitching staffs we’ve ever had.”
LSU comes in behind Miami, who got its first No. 1 ranking in program history. LSU has had the top class four times (2007, 2010, 2014, and 2018).
