According to the article above, Gamecocks Baseball Coaching staff has recieved a verbal commitment from Wando High School freshman Nick Ciuffo. Ciuffo will be the top player in the Class in 2013.
Great news right? Get this....The kid is 14 and has not taken a swing in a varsity game!
Crazy, crazy stuff but I trust Tanner and Chad Holbrook as by reading the article the kid seems to have tons of potential at 6 foot and 180 lbs.
Just goes to show how serious Tanner is about continuing to build the SC program and shows how the game has changed. It will be interesting to see in four years of Nick ends up being a gamecock.
Also note the comment made by Aaron Foote, college baseball writer for Baseball America, about the Gamecocks Baseball Team in the article...
"That program is clearly one of the best in the nation"
