  1. 2021 Baseball Recruiting Class Ranked 16th By Baseball America DURHAM, N.C. – South Carolina baseball's recruiting class has been ranked No. 16 in the nation by Baseball America, the publication announced this morning (Wednesday, Sept. 8). South Carolina is one of 11 schools from the Southeastern Conference in BA's top-25 list while the conference has nine of the top 16 classes. It's also the 12th straight season the Gamecocks' recruiting class has been ranked by the publication. UCLA has the top recruiting class according to Baseball America. The Bruins are followed by Florida, Vanderbilt, Arkansas and Tennessee in the top five. Carolina is coming off a 2021 season which saw the Gamecocks go 34-23 overall and 16-14 in the SEC. Carolina hosted a regional at Founders Park this past June for the first time since the 2016 season. Baseball America's Top-25 Recruiting Classes 1. UCLA 2. Florida 3. Vanderbilt 4. Arkansas 5.

  2. In the shortened MLB 2021 draft, veteran South Carolina slugger Andrew Eyster was not selected despite being the team's leading batter in 2021, and it's leading batter 2 of the 3 seasons he's been with the program, after transferring to Columbia after one season at Santa Fe Junior College. As a result, and with the NCAA affording all collegiate players an extra year of playing eligibility due to the pandemic, Eyster has chosen to return to play one more season in the Garnet and Black: Eyster hit .279 overall last season - .303 in SEC play - was 3rd on the team with 11 homeruns, 2nd with 42 RBI, and 3rd in on-base percentage at .371. Despite leading the team in batting, the .279 average was Andrew's lowest as a Gamecock - he hit .309 in 2019, and was 3rd in batting at .305 in the covid-shortened 2020 season. Overall Eyster has 25 homeruns, 24 doubles, and 86 RBI as a Gamecock. With the news that pitcher Julian Bosnic is also returning for 2022, the addition of a veteran bat who always has his best baseball for conference competition - and especially for our heated in-state non-conference rivals - for 2022 will only further assist our team for next season.....
  3. The opening round of the 2021 MLB Draft was completed Sunday. The only Gamecock that went in the 1st Round was 2021 signee INF Cooper Kinney. He was selected by the Tampa Bay Rays 34th overall. He's in line to get at least a $2 million signing bonus, so expect him gone. Also expect anyone selected in the 2nd Round today to be gone as well, based on past drafts....
