Baseball America Ranks UCLA Recruiting Class No. 13

Oct. 12, 2006

Los Angeles - UCLA baseball's incoming class earned a No. 13 ranking, according to Baseball America. The Bruins will play seven of the baseball programs ranked in the top-25 recruiting list this season. Third-year head coach John Savage unveiled his second recruiting class when the fall quarter began Thursday, Sept. 28.

The top-25 rundown features five Pac-10 conference programs - besides USC and UCLA, Arizona captured a No. 19 ranking, Oregon State earned a No. 20 mark and Arizona State entered at No. 24. Rounding out the list's top-five classes are Baylor, South Carolina, USC, Clemson and Miami.

The Bruins are one of four southern California area baseball programs in Baseball America's top-25 list. Following third-ranked USC is Cal State Fullerton (9), UCLA (13) and UC Irvine (14). In 2007, UCLA will play 20 total games against seven of the baseball programs listed in Baseball America's top-25 list. The three non-conference opponents ranked by Baseball America include Miami (ranked fifth), Cal State Fullerton and UC Irvine.

The Bruins' 2007 recruiting class features the Arizona Gatorade Player of the Year (Charles Brewer) and four players selected in the 2006 Major League Baseball Draft as high school seniors (Brewer, Raul Duran, Matt Drummond and Casey Haerther). Last fall, UCLA's incoming group was ranked fifth by Baseball America.

UCLA began its fall workouts Monday, Oct. 2 and will open a 12-game intersquad schedule culminating with the annual Blue-Gold World Series from Nov. 13-18. Scout Day will take place Saturday, Nov. 11, at 10 a.m. Daily workouts begin at 2 p.m. on weekdays and 10 a.m. on Saturdays. All UCLA baseball practices will take place at Jackie Robinson Stadium.
