University Junior College Recruiting Class Ranking

As many know November 13th was the start of the early signing day period this fall. And boy was it a day. For junior college athletes it generally is not as much of a surprise where they are going to sign when they have their options. They do not usually have the hats sitting in front of them like many people think when it comes to a person signing day.

From what we here at the JBB have collected it was over 200 different individuals commit/sign so far during this period. So we decided to break out or ranking caps for the first time to kick off the official 2020/2021 Calendar. Yes, we did have a Recruiting Class Ranking a few weeks back but this is for the guys that will not make it to campus till the fall of 2021.

As usual there are many of your normal universities that have already started to pick the Junior College ranks to fill their rosters for the next coming years. Below we rank the top 25 Classes as well as some Honorable Mentions.

Week 4 Teams and Players of the Week

Teams of The Week

Here is a look at the teams that made the biggest moves or had huge weeks as a team for each division

Div 1: Grayson (4-0)

Honestly, there was not a team that made a bigger statement across the entire country then what Grayson did this past weekend. This young season has been filled with tons of aww about their Conference Rival McLennan and Grayson was getting tired of people overlooking them.

Grayson, Mclennan, San Jac, and Alvin all traveled down to Houston this past week to take part in the Annual Tournament of Champions hosted by San Jac. Grayson came in swinging. They kicked it off in game 1 versus San Jac with a 5-3 Win. This was behind the Duo of Wade Elliott and Braden Carmichael (Oklahoma). Elliot led the way at the plate going 3-4 with a double, RBI, and scoring 2 runs. On the mound, Carmichael went 6 strong innings allowing just 1 earned run and striking out 7. They toppled Alvin in game two 16-2 behind the combined efforts of Wade Elliot (LA Tech) and Davis Powel. Elliot was 4-5 with 2 Doubles, and an RBI, while Powell was 3-4 with 3 Doubles, 3 RBI’s and 3 Runs. In their second game against San Jac it came down to the wire scoring 7 runs in the bottom of the 7th (6 runs), and 8th (1 run) to put them ahead. This game was led by the duo of Jordan Thompson and Elliot yet again. Thompson was 3-3 on the day with an RBI, and 3 RUns Scored while Elliot continued to tear up the ball going 2-4 with a run and another Double. They wrapped up the weekend with a 9-0 win over Alvin. This game was led by Thompson who was 3-3 with 2 doubles, 2 RBI’s and 2 runs. 

Div 3: Coastal Bend (3-0)

Coastal Bend is in a weird spot in the country to where most of their schedule is against the best of the best at the Division one level. Well, this past week they showed that they belonged with them taking 3 games from Region 14 Power Panola. They took game one 6-5, thanks to a 6 run 6th inning in which Eric Martinez launched a 2 run homer. He ended the day going 1-4. On the mound, Nolan Cox got his 2nd win of the season going 7.0 innings with 6 Strikeouts allowing just 1 run. In-game 2 Coastal took it 3-1. Thanks to 2 late runs in the bottom of the 6th they pushed ahead. Grant Rogers was the stand out for them on the mound going 5 strong innings striking out 11 while allowing just 1 run, he, unfortunately, didn't get the win. Rounding out the sweep Coastal took the last game 6-5 again coming from behind. Scoring in the 7th and then walking it off in the 9th.

Div. 1- Mid-South District Preview (Reg. 14)

This District was one of the toughest to call coming out of last year. Going into the season the usual favorite could not compete postseason so it was really up for grabs as to who was going to take home the Mid-South/Region 14 Crown and a trip to Grand Junction. Navarro rose to that occasion taking the Region title from Blinn after running through the first 3 rounds of the tournament. They ended up finishing 3rd in the country after fighting through the losers bracket and forcing a winners take all 3rd place game against Iowa Western to decide who would play for the National Title. They finished the season with a record of 41-18.

Previous winners: ‘19 Navarro, ‘18 San Jac, ‘17 San Jac, ‘16 San Jac

This year San Jac is back in full force with the Pre-Season Pitcher of the Year in Luke Little (South Carolina); who is also the National Pre-Season Pitcher of the Year and All-American. A team that does not always get the recognition in this region Wharton boasts the Pre-Season Player of the Year in Alec Carr (New Mexico) who also happens to be a Pre-Season All-American.
