More Honors For UCLA Baseball's Incoming Freshman Class

From the official site:

The UCLA baseball program's incoming group of nine freshmen has been rated No. 3 in the country by Baseball America, the national publication announced Friday. Under seventh-year head coach John Savage, the Bruins' last six classes have earned top-20 acclaim by Baseball America.

UCLA's latest recruiting class was tabbed No. 4 in the nation by Collegiate Baseball last month. The Bruins' 2005-06 incoming group was ranked No. 5 by Baseball America and the 2007-08 class was hailed as the No. 5 group by Collegiate Baseball.

The top five recruiting classes in the nation, as ranked by Baseball America, include Stanford, LSU, UCLA, San Diego and Oregon, respectively. Rounding out the top 10 classes, in order, are Florida, Georgia Tech, Arkansas, Rice and Cal State Fullerton.

The Bruins freshman class features five players who were chosen in the 2010 MLB Draft. Each of the incoming three right-handed pitchers were drafted in June - Adam Plutko in the sixth round by the Houston Astros, Zack Weiss in the 10th round by the Pittsburgh Pirates and Nick Vander Tuig in the 39th round by the Toronto Blue Jays. Outfielder Brenton Allen was drafted by the Philadelphia Phillies in the ninth round and infielder Kevin Williams was taken by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 41st round.

Those are impressive details. You can read more here. The fall practice began last week and will end with annual "Blue-Gold World Series" on November 15-19. Season gets started in February. Can't wait.

GO BRUINS.
