Made It To Campus Recruiting Class Ranking

Every year things happen when it comes to recruits. Some get drafted. Some decide last minute that the school they picked is not for them anymore. Then others honor their commitment and end up on campus. 

Well this past year as many of you know this is no normal year whatsoever. A lot of “Normal” recruiting tactics, Commitments, and much more changed where guys ended up going. 

We here at the JBB did an end of the year 4-Year Recruiting Class update and thought that would be it. Well a lot changed. From schools getting guys back that they did not think they would have. To People going back to their Junior College, to Guys switching completely because they were given that choice.

For the past few weeks we have been talking to different schools all over the country checking, Double Checking, and Triple Checking if what we had stayed the same or if guys moved.  

There were some surprises for sure when we saw where guys ended up going. There were also some that we missed before as a whole. (Hey we’re just two guys with an unhealthy obsession with Junior College baseball we miss things sometimes). After going through them all this is the list we came to….

Week 6 Players and Teams 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: Crowder (7-0)

Yes, Crowder is in this week’s Top 10. But when you play 7 games in a week and outscore your opponents 98-12 it’s worth diving into just how crazy each game was for them. 

They started the week on Thursday, with a 31-0 win over Labette.  They played 7 innings scoring in every one of those 7. The biggest inning came in the 5th when they scored 12. On the mound Chandler Ashby threw a complete game shutout striking out 4 and only allowing 4 hits. At the plate is where things obviously get a bit crazy. Frankie Circello and Victor Plaz led the way for them (even though there really is not anyone that did not actually do good that game). Circello was 3-3 on the day with 3 homers, 6 RBI’s, and scored 4 runs himself. Plaz was 3-4 on the day with 2 homers, 9 RBI’s, and 2 Runs. 

The next day, Friday, they had a double header against Lake Land. They won the first game 13-0, behind Jared Viertel who threw a complete game shutout, striking out 7 with 3 walks in 5 innings, and Cameron Tissue (South Alabama) who was 3-3 in the game with a double, homer, 6 RBI’s and scored twice. The second game of the day was the closest game they had all week. It was a 2-1 win which they walked off in the bottom of the 7th. 

They finished the week with a weekend series against Indian Hills in which they took the games 16-6, 13-2, 11-1, and 12-2. In the second game (13-3), Crowder hit 6 homers as a team. 2 by Logan Chambers, 2 by Landrey Wilkerson, 1 by Frankie Circello, and 1 by Rod Criss.

Aaron Ball was just recently named a Div. 2 preseason All-American and he’s coming off of an outstanding fall campaign. Aaron is the literal definition of a “pop up” guy as coming into college he was not highly sought after and has grown a tremendous amount in stature and mph Velo since arriving on campus. One of the fastest rising arms in the country and a future Tulane Green wave player, Aaron Ball.
