Gator baseball recruiting class ranked No. 18
The 2008 Florida recruiting class has been ranked No. 18 in the nation by Collegiate Baseball Newspaper in its 26th annual rundown of NCAA Division I baseball recruiting classes released this week. Florida's 12 recruits include 10 freshmen and two junior college transfers, and the class is a nine-spot jump from last year's rating of No. 27.
"We are very excited about our incoming class," said second-year head coach Kevin O'Sullivan. "We expect a lot of these student-athletes to step right in and compete for playing time immediately. We feel as though we have found the right mix of players who value their college education and have the physical abilities and mental toughness to help the Gators on the road back to Omaha.''
