: : : For those obsessed with how recruits and recruiting classes rank, here's something to chew on. South Carolina did not rank in Baseball America's Top 25 classes in 2007, 2008 or 2009. Those classes only went on to provide the core of two national championship teams. Recruiting rankings mean nothing.
: : :: A lot of it has to do with who actually shows up on campus. I would say recruiting rankings before the first day of the fall
semester mean nothing.
: Those are the rankings I am referring to...the Baseball America rankings that come out in November. They only include the players who come to school. Any signees who sign with MLB teams are not counted for the rankings.
:: You are right. But I bet you could put together an MLB all star team of players who signed with ASU but didn't attend school b/c they signed pro contracts. If you combined those who played at ASU w/ those who signed but never came to ASU, you could probably put together a hall of fame team.
