  9. South Carolina's 2020 baseball class was ranked 5th in the nation on Friday (Jan. 15th) per D1Baseball. This class will be for the 2020-2021 season, which means they are enrolled and will be part of this season's roster. The D1Baseball's ranking makes the 2020 class a consensus top-10 ranked class by all four online recruiting services, as it was ranked 4th by Perfect Game, 6th by Baseball America, and 8th by Collegiate Baseball. 2020 D1Baseball.com Recruiting Rankings 1. Miami (Fla.) 2. LSU 3. TCU 4. Arizona 5. South Carolina 6. Florida 7. Mississippi State 8. Texas 9. Georgia 10. Arkansas 11. Stanford 12. Vanderbilt 13. Florida State 14. Georgia Tech 15. Ole Miss 16. Clemson 17. Texas Tech 18. UCLA 19. Wake Forest 20. Oklahoma State 21. West Virginia 22. North Carolina 23. Washington 24. Oklahoma 25. Kentucky The outstanding 2020 class rankings follow the 2019 class that saw national rankings of 3rd by Collegiate Baseball, 9th by D1Baseball, 11th by Baseball America, and 38th by Perfect Game. Perfect Game's 2019 ranking was different from the other sources in that it didn't include JUCO talent in the class, which was a major percentage of the group. That doesn't seem to be an issue for the online service with the 2020 class. In any case, it appears that Head Coach Mark Kingston and staff have done well in bringing top talent into the program. Now lets go play ball!
