Another No. 5 Ranking for Baseball Recruiting Class

Oct. 22, 2009

Durham, North Carolina - Cal State Fullerton baseball secured another No. 5 ranking for their 2010 recruiting class, this time with Baseball America, in its annual poll of the nation's top crops of incoming players.

Fullerton came in behind Florida (1), Stanford (2), Arizona State (3) and TCU (4) in this year's rankings jumping 10 spots from its No. 15 finish in 2009.

Head Coach Dave Serrano, Recruiting Coordinator Sergio Brown and Assistant Coach Greg Bergeron have produced two consecutive Top 15 marks with their first two recruiting classes at Cal State Fullerton and a third one overall with a No. 14 ranking in 2007 with UC Irvine.

According to the Durham, North Carolina-based baseball publication, Dylan Floro (a Tampa Bay 20th round pick, Buhach Colony HS), Geno Escalante (a Milwaukee 28th round pick, Rodriguez HS), Anthony Hutting (a Texas 38th-round pick, Tesoro HS), Ivory Thomas (a Houston 42nd round pick, Downey HS), Richie Pedroza (Northview HS), David Kiriakos (Pacific HS) and David Hurlbut (a Minnesota 35th round draft pick, Diablo Valley College) are the standouts of this year's Titan class.

Among more detail in the subscription-based content, Baseball America says that Floro could be an impact arm of this year's class like Tyler Pill and Noe Ramirez were last season; Escalante has ample raw power; Hutting is one of the premiere hitters on the West Coast; and Hurlbut will give the Titans's staff a quality left-handed arm.

The Titans finished with three Baseball America Freshmen All-Americans in Pill, Noe Ramirez and Nick Ramirez in 2009 after compiling a 47-16 overall record and making the school's 16th trip to Omaha for the College World Series.

Fullerton was also ranked No. 5 by Collegiate Baseball in its annual recruiting class rankings in mid September.
