Thanks to a deep, talented group of incoming freshmen, Vanderbilt earned the top spot in Baseball America’s 2019 recruiting class rankings.

Vanderbilt’s class features nine players who ranked among the BA 500 top prospects for the 2019 draft (which included all draft-eligible players), the most in the nation. This is the Commodores’ record sixth top-ranked class. They also ranked No. 1 in 2005, 2011, 2012, 2015 and 2017, and this year extended their streak of Top 25 classes to 15 years.

Mississippi closely followed and earned the No. 2 ranking, with Florida, Texas Christian and UCLA rounding out the top five. The rankings again had a heavy SEC flavor at the top. The conference produced the top-ranked class for the ninth year in a row and six of the top 10.

Brigham Young makes its recruiting rankings debut, breaking into the Top 25 for the first time in the rankings’ history, which dates to 2000.

The recruiting rankings take into account all players from the high school and junior college ranks and were compiled following many conversations with coaches and scouts. Four-year transfers were not considered for the ranking.
