Another nationally-ranked class for UK
On Tuesday, Collegiate Baseball tabbed UK's 2013 newcomers as the No. 11 class in the nation. It marked the seventh consecutive year the Cats have featured a ranked class from one of the nation's leading baseball outlets and the fourth time in the Top 20.
Catchers Zach Arnold and Casey Schroeder, right-handed pitchers Kyle Cody and Matt Pope and left-handed pitcher Chase Mullins highlight the newcomers. All five were selected in the 2012 Major League Baseball amateur draft, but chose to play for the Wildcats.
A 6-foot-2, 190-pound catcher out of Ohio, Schroeder was UK's highest drafted signee, selected by the St. Louis Cardinals in the 21st round.
The Cats landed a trio of towering pitchers, including the 6-9 Mullins from nearby Paris, Ky., and a pair of 6-8 hurlers in Cody and Pope.
Kentucky's 14 newcomers also include: Georgia outfielder Kyle Barrett; Lexington (Ky.) Bryan Station southpaw Ryne Combs; Lexington (Ky.) Dunbar righty Tyler Cox; Calloway County (Ky.) lefty Dylan Dwyer; Lexington (Ky.) Tates Creek outfielder Dorian Hairston; former UK football quarterback Jacob Russell; London (Ky.) infielder Zack Storm; Salem (Va.) infielder Thomas Weaver and switch-hitting outfielder Storm Wilson out of Somerset (Ky.).
The Wildcats placed fifth in the SEC recruiting class rankings for 2013. Vanderbilt reeled in the No. 1 class. LSU ranked fourth, Florida seventh and South Carolina checked in No. 10. Rounding out the league classes were Texas A&M (No. 14), Georgia (No. 14), Alabama (No. 16), Auburn (No. 22), Arkansas (No. 26), Mississippi State (No. 37) and Ole Miss (No. 39).
In-state rival Louisville ranked as the 35th-best class in college baseball.
