2018 Baseball Recruiting Thread

Recommended Posts

I was going to wait til AU made a press release in November on the signing class before making this thread since accurate lists are so hard to find but I guess we will go ahead & use PerfectGame's list. They have the disclaimer on their site the lists may not be 100% accurate.

Thanks for posting the list...

I know that physical stats can be deceptive....but not much size in this group of guys....and pitcher-heavy list....hoping to see a bit more on the power front ...

Agree 64. Our current team seems somewhat average in size also. Baseball like everything else is turning into a big man sport. Every position need to have a power pop in their bat.

Actually he just has long arms ... he's holding it closer to the camera so it just "looks" bigger.  Kinda like a big bass...

Lantana (Texas) Liberty Christian OF Kason Howell has signed with Auburn. Hit .466 with 6 home runs, 36 RBIs and 27 stolen bases as a junior

Kid can fly, will be a big addition to the outfield if he can hit SEC pitching.  Father is the D line coach and assistant baseball coach at his high school...family apparently lived in Auburn for three years.

This is the most recent Perfect Game list. It includes a few names that Auburn didn't announce in November as part of this high school signing class and doesn't include a few known JUCO names. From what I can tell, the names not on the list that Auburn announced are: LHP Brooks Fuller (Auburn HS, son of former Auburn player/assistant coach Mark Fuller), RHP Blake Rivera (Central PC, JUCO Wallace-Dothan), and LHP Bailey Horn (McClennan College, JUCO in Texas). Troy Bearden and Will Morrison are the two HS players listed as commits by PG that Auburn didn't announce as signees, although Bearden's travel team's website shows him as a commitment also and Morrison recently committed March 2nd. This class is currently ranked 29th by Perfect Game.
