Recruiting Class Ranked No. 8 by Baseball America

CORAL GABLES, Fla. — The University of Miami’s 2017 recruiting class was ranked the eighth-best nationwide by Baseball America, the publication announced Tuesday.

The group, ranked as the second-best in the ACC, continues a longstanding trend of top recruiting classes arriving on campus; Miami’s 2016 group was ranked No. 13, its 2014 group was ranked No. 20, its 2013 class was ranked No. 6 and its 2012 newcomers were ranked No. 9.

Two members of the class were selected in the 2017 MLB First-Year Player Draft; righthanded pitcher Chris McMahon was taken by Milwaukee in the 33rd round while infielder Ray Gil was picked in the 37th round by Oakland.

Danny Reyes, an incoming transfer from Broward Junior College, was drafted in the 39th round by the Boston Red Sox out of high school in 2015.

McMahon (No. 76), first baseman Alex Toral (No. 199), outfielder Gabe Rivera (No. 329) and first baseman Connor Allen (No. 440) were all ranked among Baseball America‘s top 500 draft-eligible prospects.
