Niner Baseball Recruiting

Since today is Signing Day, I figured we should probably split out a separate thread for baseball recruiting.

We will start with the 2021 Class. We’ve already talked some about these guys but some will become official today.

Drew Tyndall, Catcher out of Wilmington, verballed in October 2019.

49ers got commitments last fall from the middle infield at Charlotte Christian with JD Suarez and Hayden Brandon. Great to see Charlotte kids choosing to stay home!!

Drew Messick, a 3B from Dallas, TX committed in December 2019. When he committed, he was the 6th Ranked third baseman in Texas.

Huck Wathan, catcher out of Charlotte Country Day.

Side notes: Hucks father, Dusty Wathan is currently the 3B Coach for the Phillies, and his grandfather John Wathan played and managed in the big leagues for the Royals. I distinctly remember getting this baseball card as a kid.

JUCO RHP Ari Gordon from Parkland College in Illinois committed in October. The relationship with P3 paying off not only in development of players but in recruiting also.

Collin Kramer LHP out of North Iowa Area Community College verballed in October. FB at 93, added 10 mph in the last year. Another with P3 connections. Current 49er Tyson Tucker pitched at NIACC as well.

RHP Paxton Thompson, also out of Parkland College in Illinois committed in October. FB at 92.

I know I am old, but this guy looks like he is 14. Regardless, welcome to Charlotte Caleb.

Oh dang…

Glad to see baseball seems to be killing it. Hope it translates to on field performance.

It is always a good sign to be competing with a program like Stanford for players. And in this case, a recruit choosing Charlotte over Stanford in order to stay closer to home in Greensboro. Stanford is traditionally an elite baseball program.
