Where was that guy that had the post about how there's rarely, if ever, been a player who chose CoC over USC?

I would count this more of a following the coach that recruited you, over a choosing CofC over Carolina

He was 5-2 with a 1.62 ERA last year. Pretty good but most D1 pitchers put up better numbers in HS. He was the Lowcountry player of the year, but tat was as much due to his batting (.472 as a 3rd Baseman and Catcher).

In other words, we may not have wanted to keep him. Especially if he was tying up some significant scholarship $.

I won't back up Ace and say that's the case, but baseball schollies are much more limited than most sports. If we cooled on him and weren't showing strong interest anymore, I don't blame the kid for following the coach that wanted his talents in the first place.

It's possible this was all the recruit's choice between the two, but we'll never know and have bigger fish to fry as a program than CH getting recruits to follow him.

Seems like he wanted to follow Chad which is understandable. At any rate our recruiting class is looking strong. So pumped to see what Kingston's team brings to the diamond.

No, just saying that if I was the new coach and needed pitching, I would not be looking at this guy as a big part of the solution. And if he was getting something like a half scholarship, I could easily find someone who could contribute sooner.

A Charleston player staying home and committing to the coach that he committed to originally - and who is far from a can't miss player - even you would be hard pressed to turn this into a big negative.

Move along, nothing to see here,

Default Re: Recruiting news

The kid's from Summerville and the coach he was expecting to play for just got the HC job at CofC

I can't blame him, he's even closer to family and his friends and he gets to play for the head coach who he originally committed to.

Hate to lose an arm, but we'll be fine

Kornblut had a good point - if he did not sign a LOI, it was because he was not getting any scholarship money. So we are losing out on a walk-on. A good walk-on, but one that was not going to offer any immediate impact.

No real surprise.
I expect a few more to probably go to CofC. Chad recruited them and they likely want to play for him.

Best of luck to him.

Not sure if it has been mentioned, but Kingston pulled in two very large pitching prospects for 2019, according to Big Spur.

6'5, 220 Brett Thomas (Atlanta) and 6'4, 220 Jonathan Machamer (Ohio).
