Two Freshmen Ranked in Baseball America Top 10

BATON ROUGE, La. – LSU outfielder Dylan Crews and right-handed pitcher Ty Floyd are ranked among Baseball America magazine’s Top 10 college baseball incoming freshmen. 

Crews is No. 4 on the list, and Floyd is No. 10. LSU joins Miami (Fla.) as the only schools with multiple players in the Top 10:

1. Carson Montgomery, RHP, Florida State
2. Kevin Parada, C, Georgia Tech
3. Chase Davis, OF, Arizona
4. Dylan Crews, OF, LSU
5. Victor Mederos, RHP, Miami
6. Alejandro Rosario, RHP, Miami
7. Drew Bowser, INF, Stanford
8. Cade Horton, RHP/SS, Oklahoma
9. Enrique Bradfield, OF, Vanderbilt
10. Ty Floyd, RHP, LSU

Crews is a 6-0, 200-pound product of Longwood High School in Lake Mary, Fla. Here is Baseball America’s scouting report on the LSU outfielder:

“Crews wanted to be a part of the LSU baseball program so much that he removed his name from the draft the week before the event began, reaffirming his commitment to the Tigers. He’s a part of the Tigers’ No. 2-ranked recruiting class and gives them a ready-made replacement for outfielder Daniel Cabrera. Crews has an easy right-handed swing and good bat speed, which could help him produce power over time.”

Floyd is a 6-2, 190-pound product of Rockmart (Ga.) High School. Below is Baseball America’s scouting report on the LSU right-hander:

“Floyd is LSU’s top newcomer on the mound and while breaking into the Tigers’ rotation this spring won’t be easy, he’s got the talent to pitch important innings. His electric fastball sits 92-95 mph to go with a big breaking ball and changeup.”

Baseball America ranked LSU’s 17-man class of incoming players No. 2 last month in its annual recruiting survey. The newcomers joined LSU’s returning players on Wednesday for the start of the Tigers’ six-week fall practice period, which continues through November 10.
